Case Book

Scope and Content

(Not numbered in original sequence). The final number of the unique archival identifier refers to the page number.
This volume appears to be a supplement to the first case book and not a continuation of it. It appears to have come into use in 1803, recording notes on selected patients either already in residence in 1803 (and thus with earlier admission dates, going back to 1796) or else admitted between 1803 and the early 1820s, when the volume peters out. It contains notes on patients' progress ie the sort of information one might expect in a case book
Researchers should use RET 6/5/1A and RET 6/5/1B together for details of the earliest patients at the Retreat
