DEAF AND DUMB APPLICANT.
Application was made for an order to send to the Asylum, a fine healthy
and intelligent lad aged 12 years, named PATRICK DUGGAN.  Joined to his
unfortunate natural affliction, he was labouring under dislocation of
the right arm for several years, and its use was very much contracted.
No objection soever was raised to his admission.

The Medical Officer reported that he had inspected Miss KIDD’S house, at
Kyle, and Raven View Cottage, owned by JAMES DOYLE, at Curracloe, and
that he approved of them as outstations for Vaccination. The committee
selected the houses and agreed to pay £1 for the use of each during the
months of May and October of each year.
