Statement sent to Commissioners in Lunacy.
Patient has been dejected and very restless much of the time since admission. In an hour or more after being put to bed the first night she stayed, danced about, struggled, and would not be appeased...
The only words she had uttered intelligibly, are "mama", "bit of cake".
She has been restless all the time when awake, several times has climbed on to chairs and tables. Has fed herself, but very hastily. Has thrown herself on the floor in a passion when displeased.
