    Excerpt from On Lunatic Asylums: A Discourse Delivered on 2d August, 1810, Previous to Laying the Foundation Stone of the Glasgow Lunatic Asylum

    Without dwelling on the heart-rending circum stances which attend mental derangement, it must be obvious, that the Security which is consistent with the safety of the insane, their connections, or general society, can only in a very few cases, be enjoyed in the houses of private families. In these few cases, it can only be attained at such an expense of time, and attention, and with so much anxiety, and harassment of mind, as must greatly injure the happiness and peace Of domestic life. Removal from home is generally necessary, and in almost every case is desirable. But if our friends, thus helpless and unhappy, must be removed from us, to what places are they to be taken? Are you satisfied that they should be carried to mere places of confinement? Do you desire nothing better for them than a gaol? Are they to.add, as in many places, to the miseries of our prisons? Would you treat them as the refuse of their species; prepare for them only chains and bolts, a ¿oor of stone, and a bed of straw? And add diseases and pains of body, exasperated and wounded feelings to the evils which oppress them? Looking only to secu rity and safety, we are led by every consideration of justice and humanity, to provide appropriate abodes, and accommodations suited in some degree to the condition Of our unfortunate brethren.

    But the necessity of this will appear still more urgent, when we attend to their Recovery.

    It must be obvious, that we cannot expect the recovery of the sick, unless we provide the means which are adapted to their disease.' If necessity, therefore, force us to remove our fellow-creatures to separate abodes, we must either leave the um happy sufferers to perish, the victims of our neglect and inhumanity, or we must suit these abodes to the nature of their case; furnish such accommodations and establish such a plan of management, as may afford them relief and pro mote their cure: in other words, we must form lunatic asylums.
