Sir James Coxe on Lunacy in its Relations to the State


We make the following extracts from a pamphlet published by the late Sir James Coxe just before his death, called “Lunacy in its Relations to the State,” which is chiefly a digest of the evidence given before the Dillwyn Committee, going over much the same ground as our article on Lunacy Law in the No. of this Journal for Jan., 1878, the author stating his views in regard to many important points connected with insanity.
