1847 LETTER FROM DR. JOHN S. BUTLER, THE SUPERINTENDENT OF THE HARTFORD RETREAT FOR THE INSANE -CONCERNING A DISTURBED WOMAN.

1pg letter, approx. 8" x 9-7/8", datelined "Retreat, Aug. 23, 1847", (Hartford, Ct. - Hartford Retreat for the Insane), from John S. Butler, to Henry White, at New Haven, Ct.

Folded letter has blue "HARTFORD/Ct." cds postmark and blue "5" rate handstamp.

A scarce autograph letter signed (ALS), of Dr. JOHN S. BUTLER, (1803-1890); Graduated from Yale in 1825; Was Superintendent of the South Boston Lunatic Asylum, and in 1843, became Superintendent of the Hartford Retreat for the Insane, in Hartford, Ct., a position he held for nearly 30 years.

Good content, written from the Retreat for the Insane, in which Dr. Butler, who had recently visited New Haven, writes of a Miss Barkerhe called on while there, who was "unwell, and "the perplexities of her situation are doing her great harm" - likely a refererence to her mental health.

Includes:

"It was not the least of my many disappointments last week, that I was unable to partake with Mr. B. of your hospitality. During neither of my brief 'calls' in New Haven, had I time to see you.

I called upon Miss Barker, regretted to see that she was evidently more unwell - the perplexities of her situation are doing her great harm, I fear. My object in this letter is to call your attention to her. I know not as any thing can be done, but I am alarmed for her, & fear to haveher continue in her present situation....

Could not Miss B. & her Mothervisit somewhere, either in or out of New Haven, till permanent arrangements can be made?"
