An unmarried female, æt. 56, was admitted into the Suffolk County Asylum on February 24th, 1902. Owing to circumstances at the time no very complete examination into the mental condition was made, but the case appeared to be one of dementia of quite an ordinary type, characterised by dulness, stupidity, inability to sustain a connected conversation, although able to give replies to simple questions, loss of memory, tendency to wander aimlessly about, and negligence in habits. Nothing of any particular note could be ascertained in the previous history of the case, which was evidently of some months' duration, although the mental condition did not necessitate removal to an asylum until a week or so before admission.
