Summary

CD may keep the photograph of "the holy Mary of Egypt". TLB may have been led away by his imagination in thinking that one side of the face expressed repentance and the other devout joy.

Crichton-Browne’s observations on the asymmetry of convolutions on the two sides of the brains of maniacs.
