Designing of tests to "diagnose mental disease and mental deficiency in an immigrant at an immigration station" since "Normal aliens at the time of landing are in a peculiar mental state. Many of them have come from rural districts where opportunities have been meager; they have parted from their relatives and friends; they have undergone a long voyage, perhaps suffering many hardships; they are anxious to land and to meet relatives. Therefore, their mental condition has been partly shaped by all these circumstances; and if they are questioned or given mental tasks to perform at the time of arrival it is to be expected that their replies and general behavior will not be the same as would be obtained under other conditions." - Introduction. ; The American Immigration Collection Series II; Ex-Library; 132 pages.
