A few have my name written all over them

COULD THE LIST OF REASONS BELOW, FOR ADMISSION TO AN INSANE ASYLUM FROM THE LATE 1800S, BEEN A MESSAGE MEANT FOR ME AND HALF OF MY SESSION MATES, THOSE WHO’VE “ESCAPED”?

I’ve swiftly concluded that the criteria was rather all-encompassing, however, a few have my name written all over them! (check old sweats and PJs for tags or initials: WVHI?)

REASONS FOR ADMISSION TO AN INSANE ASYLUM

SALVATION ARMY
OVERSTUDY OF RELIGION
RELIGIOUS ENTHUSIASM




Who among us is a stranger to what’s on this list?


West Virginia’s Hospital for the Insane (Weston) aka Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum

Would love to know who are the person who created this list, their age, sex and denomination(s)?!
