Excerpt from Notes on Asylums for the Insane: In America

The following Notes, which appeared in the pages of the Lancet during the present year, formed part of a controversy on the treatment of the Insane in the United States, which has now been happily ended by the Editor of the Lancet making the statement in his issue of September 16th, that he has "neither said nor implied that there were no good and well-managed asylums in the United States;" nor has he "stigmatised the alienists of America as 'mad-doctors' in reproach, and condemned the whole body of psychologists across the Atlantic for faults in which they do not all participate." The Editor of the Lancet has, moreover, done an act of justice to Dr. Nichols, the President of the Association of Superintendents of American Asylums, by publishing the verdict which was unanimously agreed to by the Committee of Inquiry of Congress, whereby Dr. Nichols was acquitted of the grievous but unfounded charges made against him.
