Scope and Contents

"Admitted CR, discharged. Diagnosis? Had always been peculiar and eccentric. Was a domestic servant, left her places without giving any reason for so doing. Took dislikes to people, thought they were against her, made noises in church etc. Very difficult at home. Well known character, definitely funny, sings in the choir but always rushes out of church before the minister. Ludicrously dressed, always cycling about."
