[An excerpt from the Grand Jury report]

The interests of the Poor House we find to be properly cared for by the Superintendent, Mr. J. F. Lynn.  The pauper houses are in good condition and neatly kept.  There are now on the place 17 paupers, including men, women and children.  One of these, Matthew Goodson, is a suitable subject for the Lunatic Asylum.  Mr. Wm. Pinion, a relative, proposes to take him to his house and care for him, if the county will pay him $16.66 per month.  This contract would save the county some $75 per year, and we would recommend this course to the Ordinary.
