8. Asylum Reports, 1902: Some English County and Borough Asylums.


Carmarthen.—The Committee of Visitors report that it has under consideration the establishment of a pension scheme. The Commissioners note that the asylum is overcrowded, which will possibly explain in part the abnormally high death-rate from phthisis. This asylum lays itself out to receive private patients, and at the time of report had forty-two of these, paying from 10s. to 2 2s. per week. There is a proposal to acquire fresh land and build accommodation for them. Dr. Goodall again brings before his Committee the benefits of boarding out patients as a means of obviating the necessity for some of the fresh building which will otherwise soon be required.
