History of Case.—William H., æt. 62, was admitted into this asylum on 2nd December, 1880, suffering from melancholia. He was brought from the Brighton Workhouse, where he had been for a fortnight. The relieving officer was unable to give any history of the case, as the patient was a vagrant, and had no known relatives. He had been discharged from the workhouse some days previously, and immediately he left lay down outside the gate, and remained in that position all day, and in the evening was again admitted. This happened several days in succession, and eventually the stipendiary sent him to the asylum.
