The case here dealt with is that of a man æt. 35, now a patient at Carmarthen Asylum, formerly a ferryman. He was admitted from prison, where he was undergoing a sentence of twelve calendar months with hard labour, having been convicted at the assizes of unlawfully attempting to have carnal knowledge of a girl under thirteen years. He was imprisoned on March 24th, 1902; the trial was on May 30th, and he was removed to the asylum on July 1st, symptoms of certifiable insanity having been first observed by the medical officer to the prison on June 26th. The total term of imprisonment was therefore rather over three months.
