Case Notes

1905 May 21 - Well built, nourished and healthy woman of average height, brown hair, blue irides, equal pupils. Suffering from Mania of some considerable standing and is evidently quite Incurable.

She is extremely rambling and incoherent and unable to offer an intelligent reply to any question, or to give any acct. of herself. She is free from excitement but untidy in dress and is disposed to be obstinate.

Eats and sleeps well.

Well behaved and cleanly.


July 1 - No trouble in any way but useless. Has improved in appearance. Sept 1 - Quiet and well behaved but useless.

Nov 7 - Demented and silly.

Notes from 1906 Feb to 1912 Mar indicate little change. 1913 June - Very deluded. Still thinks she is and calls herself Victoria. Does not employ herself.
