Mr. Wall aanounced that Dr. %Vebb rom the Committce of tho Washtenaw ounty Medical Society, pursuant to rosiution of tho Poard, was ready to reort. The Doctor then reportad as follows to it : 'o the Honorable the Board of S arpen: isors f the County of Wunhtciiaw : Gentlemen. - The undorsigned is intructod to rospoctiully ask leave to state o your honorable body that at thcir last ïeoting the Medical Society of this city ppointed a committee to visit the Couny Poor House and ascertain the sanitary ondition of its inmates special reference cing had to the condition of the insane. Havmg been affordod every facility for nspection ot' tho whole establishment by be koeper, it is but justifo to that official o say that tho department for paupers oeiued to the coinmittoe to be well conüctod, and th'ey bulicve it will compare avorably with any liho institution. The undersigned is directed to say thai it was pecially gratifying to tho couuaittec to ud that the funds appropriated for the )urj)ose were expended so wisely and so veil ia the construction of the Asylum 'or tho Insane. The condition of tl i ose infortunate persons is iiiKnitely botter ;han before that building was erected. - Jreatly improved, howcver, as their conition is, yet tho neods of that unl'ortuuate class are far from being all met. Profets: onal skill adequate to thosc noeds annot be procured with the means at the iispofal of the Supcrintcndents. Without it somo who may bo curable must beome helplesbly denicnted ; the caso of lich is pitiablü indci cl. The question of employing a professional expert for the treatiuent of these cases is one to be determined by your Honorable Board. In regard to fmtl er sanitary improvements the committee instructs the undersignod to suggest to the ioai'U that tho puruhase ot portable lnlia rubber baths for tho use of the insano and hospital apartinents would bo eminontly dosirable. It is also suggestod that furniahing the vindows of tho hospital with biinds vould be an expenditure in the interests of humimity. Tho unobstructcd rays of a summcr sun pitilossly glaring upon tho 'evered bodies and aching heads of tho ick is an evil to be abatod. Attention is rospectfully called to it, trusting that the necossary appropriations will not be withïeld, and that the interests of huraanity vill not suffer in tho hands of those who lavo done somueh that is to be commèndcd and left so littlo to be inprovéd in the case of the poor and insano of our county. Kespcctfully submittcd, N. WEBB, for Committcc. On motion of Mr. Yockley, tho report was accepted and ordored spread upon lie journal. Mr. Haire moved that tho report of the officers of the Agricultural and Ilorticulural Society be taken from tho tablc. Vgreed to.
