Excerpt from Twenty-Seventh Annual Report of the Trustees of the State Lunatic Hospital, at Worcester: October, 1859

By the' blessing of God, the institution has been preserved from prevailing epidemics and diseases. Although our number of recoveries is somewhat less than for the past two or three years, it will be remembered that the number of patients has diminished, and the number of commitments have been less, in consequence of the establishment of other like institutions in the Commonwealth. We believe, however, that the compara tive number of recoveries, on all the admissions, exhibits nearly the same ratio as in previous years.

The present condition of the hospital and its inmates is most satisfactory. The Trustees are gratified to express their con fidence in the untiring industry and devotion of our worthy Superintendent, and his e cient corps of assistants, in the pro motion of the welfare of all the inmates of the institution, and the progress of all affairs committed to their supervision.

The improvements and repairs connected with the hospital and its surroundings, have been more extensive than any former year. The chapel, from its dilapidated and untenantable con dition, requiring many important and expensive repairs, is now, in connection with other important improvements, being rebuilt and in rapid progress of completion. The erection of suitable fences, the relaying of water pipes, and the construction of reservoirs on the farm and at the' stables, together with the general improvements in agricultural affairs, constitute a large item in the list of current expenses.
