CASE 154.—Private J. C. Morrow, Co. E, 110th Ohio; admitted Nov. 23, 1863. Died 28th. Post-mortem examination thirty-nine hours after death: The brain was healthy. The lungs were somewhat engorged posteriorly. The heart was flabby and contained a small clot in both sides, larger in the right than in the left. The liver was firm and somewhat congested, its surface of an intense bluish-slate color, which coloration extended two lines into the parenchyma; the gall-bladder contained an ounce of dark-brown bile; the spleen was of a purple color with an admixture of brown and was extremely firm; the pancreas was white and not very firm. The ileum, in its six lower feet, was extensively ulcerated; about two feet above the ileo-cæcal valve was a Peyer's patch of an irregular circular shape, presenting three distinct ulcers with high blackish walls and stone-gray bases, in one of which was a small perforation which had caused some exudation of lymph on the peritoneal coat. The kidneys were healthy.—Ass't Surg. H. Allen, U. S. A., Lincoln Hospital, Washington, D. C.
