Assault on Dr. Wiglesworth


Our readers will be aware from the Medical Journals that Dr. Wiglesworth has had a narrow escape from a fatal assault by a male patient in the Rainhill Asylum. It must be some comfort to him to know how widespread has been the sympathy expressed with him in his very serious condition. The satisfaction felt in the favourable course which his illness has happily run is in proportion to the anxiety experienced.

For these particulars we are indebted to Dr. Menzies, Senior Assistant Medical Officer of the Rainhill Asylum.
