Mechanical and Other Employments for Patients in the British Lunatic Asylums (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Mechanical and Other Employments for Patients in the British Lunatic Asylums I do not know how long he had been at work when I saw him. He seemed to be about twenty-six or twenty-eight years old, and if so, he had been in the shop six or eight years. But he was then working apparently as contentedly and certainly as steadily as sane men work in other shoe shops. Indeed, he seemed to be more than contented. He was evidently pleased with being there, and with the success of his labors. He smiled pleasantly when I looked at his Shoes and said, they were well made, and would be worn and do good service. I was told that he worked there con stantly, about ten hours a day, and always in the same manner as he presented at my visits.
