This session contains a number of sub-sessions, with various different speech events relating to Renato's punishment (for having stabbed and almost killed another young man a few days before the date of the recording). There are speeches at him (by Nasau, etc.), accusing him of being a bad example; there are complaints by people from the family of Renato's victim; and there's the scene of his punishment (I recorded the moment he was whipped; the lashes are clearly audible).
This session contains about 1 1/2 hours of normal daily (morning) activity in the nursery -- people come in to talk to the nurse and get medicine. 70% of the time, there's nothing; in the rest, there are short conversations (exchanges with the nurse, usually with translators; conversations between the patients and the translators/helpers; or conversations among the patients themselves).
