Rebecca Novis was nine when she was admitted to the Hospital on the 17th April 1871. She lived in nearby Canonbury. Her symptoms included a refusal to speak, move or open her eyes for four months. The doctors were curious about her condition and lavished much attention on her. Her treatment included electrotherapy, which seemed to persuade her to speak. She was discharged at the end of May, but readmitted with a recurrence of the symptoms on 3rd July, for ten days, after which she was sent to convalesce at Cromwell House.
