    A Sketch of the Life of Elizabeth T. Stone, and of her Persecutions

    With an Appendix of Her Treatment and Sufferings While in the Charlestown McLean Asylum, Where She Was Confined Under the Pretence of Insanity

    by

    Elizabeth T. Stone

    1842

    This small and little gem of a book has 42 pages with tiny print as Elizabeth takes us through her story in her language of the time and fits nicely in to ‘how medicine should be’ as she takes us through her journey where she completely understands all the injustices that came her way and in her descriptions is so keen to tell and warn and it is all credit to her lamentations that she succeeds in how it should have been.

    “that some powerful mineral medicine had been given to me, which had injured me, that I had been cruelly deceived. She described the medicine to be pills and a liquid, very dark and some colored resembling saffron; that it had injured my brain, and it had never ought to be given to me; and I had been injured by unkind treatment;

    “In conclusion, before this work is attributed to insanity why will not the public demand an examination of the affairs and management of the McLean Asylum, and see whether my charges be true or false.”

     “shape environments that suit all users”, Wolff Olins adds.

    “End of an Era’”

    The GlaxoSmithKline or GSK logo, similar to that of Pfizer, comprises of a medicine tablet. Another theory states that the emblem actually symbolizes a heart with the company’s name inside the intimate, healthy glow of an orange palette, expressing the company’s care and love for its customers.
