3. Italian Retrospect

  • J. R. Gasquet

The first paper in the “Archives” is the conclusion of a very practical article of Prof. Verga's, on the care of the insane in private families as compared with asylums. Our readers will be amused to find that asylums built in separate blocks are suitable for England, “where the thick and perpetual clouds increase the need of air and light, and where the love of isolation is a trait of the national character;” but, beyond this, there is nothing that I need quote.
