J. L. was admitted into the Warwick County Asylum in 1853, labouring under dementia, having then been insane for three years. Up till May last the records of his case call for no remark.

Notwithstanding, he was a determined purloiner of other patients' rations, and would swallow any sort of refuse with avidity.
