This extract is taken fron(m) a general statement book: a series of monthly reports compiled by the Superintendent. It is from November 1914. In it, he complains that two German Prisoners of War have been admitted to the Asylum from a 'concentration camp' near Newbury, and that another 20 PoWs are under observation in the same camp. One of the PoWs was quarrelling with the other patients, and the Superintedent was also worried about the prospect of overcrowding.
