I have noticed that her memory has been going for 5 years or more, with a restlessness and more or less sleeplessness; for the last 3 weeks she has been perfectly incoherent in her speech, very restless, and required to be constantly watched to prevent her going out. Martha Moulsdale, her sister, states that for the last 3 weeks she has been very restless, wanting to go out, can remember next to nothing, has fallen several times, but whether due to a form of epilepsy or not she cannot say. Says her sister aged 74 that is at home is similarly affected but only affecting her memory. Dr. Price Morris, Old Colwyn.
