Excerpt from Thirteenth Annual Report of the Trustees of the State Lunatic Hospital at Worcester: December, 1845

The Trustees most cheerfully perform a duty imposed by the Legislature, which first established the State Lunatic Hospital, of annually submitting a Report of the affairs of the Institution to the Governor and Council, and through them to the Legislature, for the information of the people of the Commonwealth.

Accompanying this Report is that of the Treasurer of the Board, and the Report and Statistical tables of the Superintendent. The details exhibited by the statements of these gentlemen will be found highly satisfactory, and of deep interest.

The Trustees are thus precluded the necessity of adverting to many particulars, which otherwise they would deem it important to notice, - and will only speak generally of the condition of the Hospital.

Witnessing the evidences of the Christian Philanthropy with which Massachusetts is imbued, in the charities of her numerous voluntary associations, and the munificent donations of her individual citizens for the relief of suffering humanity, and the diffusion of light and life far and near, it was natural to expect that the representatives of such a constituency, actuated by a similar spirit of benevolence, would 'devise liberal things' for the alleviation of human woe in its most appalling form, and among the dwellers within her own borders.

From such a people and from such a spirit originated the plan of the 'State Lunatic Hospital:' and well has it realized the design of its founders.
