 December the 9th 1854
We the Jury duly sworn to pass upon the within case fully concur in the opinion that Mrs. Obedience Bass is not a Lunatic, Idiot or Insane person as stated in the Petition, but on the contrary of Sound mind or more so than is usual with persons of her age. She is certainly sane. We think however that she needs an agent to atten to her business in consequence of her blindness and bodily infirmity which we think she is capable of choosing.
