Oh Dear! it's not looking to good for Thomas, In those days mental illness was looked on very differently then it is to-day. I have looked up 'Manis' (what we think he was suffering from) and found that if Thomas had had early treatment and medication he could have lead a fairly normal life at home, instead of being locked away, but then I'm not a doctor!!

This is what I have found on the internet on Mania
Mania, the presence of which is a criterion for certain psychiatric diagnoses, is a state of abnormally elevated or irritable mood, arousal, and or energy levels. In someways it is the opposite of depression. The word derives from the Greek (mania), "madness, frenzy" and that from the verb (mainomai), "to be mad, to rage, to be furious".

In addition to mood disorders, individuals may exhibit manic behavior, however, mania is most often associated with bipolar disorder, where episodes of mania may alternate with episodes of major depression. It is vital that mania is predicted in the early stages because the patient becomes reluctant to comply to the treatment. The criteria for bipolar do not include depressive episodes and the presence of mania in the absence of depressive episodes is sufficient for a diagnosis. Regardless, even those who never experience depression experience cyclical changes in mood. These cycles are often affected by changes in sleep cycle (too much or too little), diurnal rhythms and environmental stressors.

Full-blown mania with psychotic features including hallucinations and delusions. Naturally, since mania and hypomania have also been associated with creativity and artistic talent, it is not always the case that the clearly manic bipolar person will need or want medical assistance; such people will often either retain sufficient amount of control to function normally or be unaware that they have "gone manic" severely enough to be committed or to commit themselves. Manic individuals can often be mistaken for being on drugs or other mind-altering substances.
I wonder how Thomas would have been treated to-day?
