Lexington, Ky., March 16, 1903.
To the Editor:
—Your editorial in the last number of The Journal, on family care of the harmless insane, leads me to suppose that you do not know that it has been continuously in use in Massachusetts since 1885. It was due, I believe, to the efforts of Dr. Henry R. Stedman of Boston, who wrote a most exhaustive paper on the subject. The matter was reviewed at the last meeting of the American Medico-Psychological Association.
