The superintendent's report recounts the number of deaths for the year, types of entertainment available to the "inmates," the financial state of the institution, and other topics. There is an interesting short discussion of the use of restraints. Not all patients are "insane" as at least one is being treated for morphine addiction.
        The work ends with the usual facts, figures, and tables.
        Interesting observation on some patients having private care attendants.

Publisher's light purple wrappers printed in black; wrappers dust-soiled and with rust-colored soiling, some discoloring to spine. Faint water-stain to bottom corner of leaves.  (40627)   Please RESHELVE This.
