This communication is based on a study of cases in Glasgow's Aged People's Home. The Home is for those in reduced circumstances, but above the pauper grade. It has accommodation for 140 men and 86 women. Reference is made to this point to enable a general inference to be drawn as to the proportion and frequency of cases of the more acute though brief forms of mental disturbance among the old; for with one exception they all occurred within a period of two months since the beginning of the present year. However, looking back over the last twenty years, my impression is that the number of cases here recorded is above the average of our previous experience.
