Certificate of Insanity

This is a bit of a kludge. It's based on a vintage certificate used by the probate court, but the original was a 17" by 14", four page, legal sized document that would be impossible to reproduce without a large format printer. I've chosen to break the overall commitment document into pieces for the sake of convenience. It's not absolutely historically accurate, but it's far more usable this way. The "commitment papers" used to send someone off to an institution would consist of two of these certificates and the actual warrant authorizing an involuntary confinement. I'll have the warrant finished up later this week.

You can download the PDF from Google Documents over here.
