  • W. Julius Mickle (a1)
Extract

George H——, a Quarter master-Sergeant in the 38th Regiment, was admitted into Grove Hall Asylum on the 12th of June, 1874. It was stated that the attack had then been of between one and two months' duration; that it was supposed to be aggravated, if not induced, by tropical climate;* and that he had become epileptic. Previously to his admission he had been in a state of active maniacal excitement, incoherent, noisy, destructive, violent, and the subject of delusions of a grandiose character.
