In the scuffle he fell upon his left arm which is generally swelled from the hand to the shoulder and causes much pain and suffering. Macro's conduct has been violent towards other patients and the master had very properly put a chain upon him.'
22nd April 'JB died on the 20th. Batley was by far the most noisy and testley patient we have in the asylum but for the last three or four weeks he appeared more feeble and less violent than usual. He probably would not have lived long as his manner and appearance had greatly altered of late but I consider that his death was hastened by the effects of the hurt which he received from Macro.'
