Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

A letter dated November 29 from Whitworth asking for Dr. Galt’s opinion on Whitworth visiting a patient at the Eastern Lunatic Asylum named Mary.  He explains that in recent letters, under much stress, he promised to pay Mary a visit, but with much more sober and clear thinking he has decided it best to stay away, unless, of course, it will cause more stress to the patient, Mary.
