Description

The Supervisors of the Insane write, "We find these institutions well conducted and the quiet and tidy patients happy and comfortable; the noisy and untidy patients are as happy and comfortable as their condition will permit" (p.3). This prompts one to wonder about the actual conditions of care for so-called "noisy and untidy patients."
