Text from 1857 Royal Commission Report
"MISS CAMPBELL'S HOUSE, MUSSELBURGH; Visited 2d May 1855.
A good house, in a garden. There is only one patient, an old lady, who has been here many years. She was out walking, accompanied by an attendant, when the visit was made. On a second visit she was seen, and appeared to be comfortable, and properly taken care of."
