With the help of Chris Phillips and the London Metropolitan Archives staff, I had a look at the the Alphabetical List of Patients for the City of London Asylum at Stone near Dartford in Kent.
I looked at two books and they are:

City of London, Alphabetical List of Patients.
On the spine it said 'From 1866 to 1888' (number 2 was also marked on the spine)
reference number was CLA/001/B/05/001

and

City of London, Alphabetical List of Patients.
On the spine it said 'From 1866 to 1893' (number 3 was also marked on the spine)
reference number was CLA/001/B/05/002

Unfortunately there's no mention of Kosminski or Abrahams at all.

The male patients books I didn't look at as if he's not in the alphabetical list I wouldn't expect him to be in these books, but for those interested the books for the relevant years (1888 to 1892) are:

CLA/001/B/02/007
CLA/001/B/02/008
CLA/001/B/02/009
CLA/001/B/02/0010

All these references were giving to me by a staff member as the files are in the process of being catalogued.

I'm away from home at the moment but I have a fine old Edwardian postcard of Stone Asylum. I'll put it up when I get back.
