AUDITOR'S OFFICE, Woodstock,
October 5th, 1841. 3 I hereby certify, that the foregoing is a just an 1 true abstract of all orders drawn on the Treasurer of the State of Vermont, on accounts by me allowed as Auditor of Accounts, since the eighth day of October, 1840, to and including this fifth day of October, 1841, amounting to the sum of seven thousand thirteen dollars and thirteen cents. $7,013 13.
DAVID PIERCE, Auditor of Accounts. His EXCELLENCY, GOVERNOR &c. &c.
To the Hon. the General Assembly of the State of Vermont :
The Trustees of the Vermont Asylum for the Insané respectfully, present their fifth annual
The Institution has now been nearly five years in successful operation. Notwithstanding the continual enlargement of the buildings, the number of patients has generally exceeded the accommodations. In consequence of the appropriation made by the Legislature at their last session, the trustees have erected the left wing of the Asylum, which will enable them to receive all patients who may be presented for admission. The new wing will be finished in a few weeks. So numerous had been the applications for admission, it was found the wings of the new building should be of greater length than was originally contemplated. The wing erected the present season, is twenty-seven feet longer than the other, which will also be lengthened as soon as the funds of the Asylum will admit, that the symmetrical proportions may be preserved, and greater accommodations furnished.
Since the opening of the establishment, three hundred and twenty-three patients have been admitted. Two hundred and twenty-eight have been discharged, and ninety-five remain in the institution. Of those discharged, one hundred and thirty have been restored to reason and usefulness. Sufficient has already been accomplished, to amply compensate for all the expenses which have been incurred in erecting and supporting the institution. But when we contemplate the future beneficent results which will probably attend its operations, we feel greatly encouraged to persevere in this benevolent enterprise.
From a review of the past year, the trustees feel a high degree of satisfaction in being able to assure the Legislature of this state that there have been unceasing exertions, on the part of the resident officers and assistants, to render the institution worthy of public confidence and patronage. Many of the patients have been restored to reason, and others have been greatly improved in their habits and condition. There has been no epidemic, and an unusual degree of health has prevailed. No suicide or severe injury has happened to any person, (patient or otherwise,) connected with the Asylum, since it was first opened ; and an unceasing and untiring care and vigilance has ever been manifested for the welfare of the inmates.
It is a source of gratification to the trustees that we have so healthy a
