House. Select Comm. on Lunatic Hospital. Act on State Lunatic Hospital, 1832
SEE ALSO 52314, 52344 House No. 49 A Select Committee of the House reported An Act concerning the State Lunatic Hospital, 1832. There would be a
five man Board of Trustees to manage the affairs of the institution and appoint the superintendent and treasurer. Someone from the Board had to visit
once a month, the majority had to visit twice a year, and the entire Board had to visit together at least once per year. The Board would make an
annual report in December. The Board was to serve without compensation, except for expenses. When the facility was open, all jailed lunatics would be
delivered as soon as practical. Town pauper lunatics could be sent as long as the town paid their keep. The Courts had to approve the discharge of
anyone committed by a court. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
