1. English Retrospect: Hospitals for the Insane. (Continued from p. 807.)


Barnwood House.—The retirement of Dr. and Mrs. Needham naturally forms the subject of remark in many parts of this Report, and cordial congratulations are offered to Dr. N. on his appointment to the Lunacy Commission. The recent history and progress of the institution have been so identified with Dr. Needham's name that his resigning its management might seem to threaten a blow to its success; but the worst compliment that could be paid to him would be to assume that he has built up and left the system on such a narrow and personal foundation; and we feel sure that Dr. Soutar will be found to be a competent follower in Dr. Needham's footsteps.
