My dear Sir,
May I beg your acceptance of the accompanying volume of West Riding Lunatic Asylum Medical Reports.1 The work is strictly Medical in character and will not I fear interest you much. At page 93 et seq. however you will find a few independent observations bearing upon the subject of blushing.2
I have a little more leisure now and shall send you some more material upon this topic very shortly.3
