Excerpt from Twenty-First Annual Report of the Trustees of the Massachusetts School for Idiotic and Feeble-Minded Youth: October, 1868 Gentlemen - The undersigned, Trustees, present the follow ing Report for the year which closes this day. As the persons who make up your respective bodies are changed continually, it is well to give, from time to time, in our Annual Report, an outline of the history and a general state ment of the objects of the institution. After our community had been awakened to the sad condi tion of those who, becoming insane, became thereby utterly helpless and dependent, and after the legislature had made what seemed ample provision for the cure of the curable, and the care of the incurable, it was found that a large class had been entirely neglected, to wit, those who were born to this sad condition, because they lacked self-guiding power, and the capacity of attaining it.
