information of the following circular,
addressed to the Governors of Her

due course answers to the interrogatories which accompanied the Circular
Despatch of the 1st of January, 1863.
By His Excellency's command.
He:
Acting Colonia
6th Apri
1864.
On the 1st Jahu|r|, 1863?Tjid- '
dressed to the Governors of Her
Majesty's Colonics a Despatch requesting answers to one se|ijs«f interrogatories respecting Public "Hospitals, and
to another respecting Lunatic Asylums. I received in the course of last
■year from yourself and the Gdwe^ifors
of other Colonies such answers as you
and they had been enabled to furnish,
I have had .the information thus collected under my .consideration, with a
view to ascertain what steps can be
taken for tlie nhprovVrrftml"of *Public
Hospitals and Lunatic Asylums in the
Colonies-;   -
i In.this country by far- the .greater
number of hospitals owe their existence to the bounty and philanthropy
of private persons: and the beneficent,
spirit in which? *ney^ originated- has
attended-, them continually, inducing
by the efforts and care of" those  who
ments, nianageWent and supervision.
In the Colonies institutions of this
nature have-.been, almost universally
founded and supported from public
funds, and .'they are dependent for
their well-befng'on the Executive and
Legislative Authorities.
I- regret to find that, genpraljiy
speaking, the state of these institutions
in the Colonies, .though not perhaps
worse than in England at a former
period, is yet widely and deplorably
different from what would be now
considered in this country to be consistent with, the humane objects' they
are designed to promote; whilst in
some cases, though not, I trust, in very
many, the state of Colonial Hospitals
or Lunatic Asylums would seem to be
such as can hardly be deemed to be
consistent with humanity itself. .
- I am persuaded : that the state iof
these institutions is in:general to ' be
attributed less to any wilful and deliberate neglect on the part of the
Legislative and Executive Authorities
than to a want of adequate knowledge
of what such institutions ought to be,
and of tho methods by which improvements are to be brought about, and in
the case of some of the smaller colo
nies, no doubt, it may be ascribed to
a want of adequate funds aud resources.
With a view, therefore, to supply
all the information in my power, I
have placed myself in communication
With the College of Physicians, and
with the Commissioners in Lunacy,
and I have caused a digest to be prepared o't the answers to my interrogatories received from the colony under
your government, and from others,
which digest is preceded by an account
of the general condition of the Hospitals and Lunatic Asylums in the colonies, a summary of the classes of
defects more generally prevailing, and
suggestions for the. cure of such defects.
I am confident. that in the interests
of humanity- tae;-cI:npsition of the subject thus afforded-will command, not
only your own serious attention, but
also, if necessary, that of the Legislature ; and I shall hope to receive from
you in due time a special report of any
improvements which may have' been
effected in the Hospitals and Lunatic
Asylums within your government, ac»
companied by a statement of those
which remaift foj be effected, in order
to bring those institutions into a not
unfavorable comparison with those of
this country ; and I shall be anxious
