Scope and Contents

"At the Royal Blind School. Also dull, practically unteachable but this may have been due to his bad sight. Was very difficult to test. Looked odd. Illegitimate. Mother 30+. PC does not think much of his mother. But when seen by the PSW she seemed all right - excellent cook and housewife and very clever with her hands."
