136. Hugo Strange (notebook entry)

Treatment is proceeding quite well. The patient has turned a corner, and rehabilitation is at last in sight. The next step is for him to admit and assume responsibility for his past errors. To assist him in this process, I have presented him with a rough draft of a full confession of his crimes. He has been told to revise it and sign it as his final act in his old life.

I continue to wear his former costume for the time being. It is my intention that he will come to recognize it as a marker of his prior self, something which is separate from him and can therefore be removed from his consciousness.

Mine is difficult work, but the rewards are great indeed.
