Scope and Contents

"This man is "a wee bit off", queer, just works when he likes, "is that wise that he'll no work". He was in the last war, has just lived on the family farm since then. Loafs about the garage, brother keeps him. Parents dead. Fairly big farm house, no over-crowding. Very decent people, rather old-fashioned. The weakness is thought to come from his father's side - he was an estate worker, decent but dull, no push, used to drive the cart. PC confirms queerness. He walks along the road with his trousers turned up, takes turns at times when he is very queer. He was a good worker before the last war. Now always walking about the road. Not alcoholic. One of his sisters is supposed to not eat enough. Dr says this man is schizophrenic, used to threaten suicide, unemployable."
