CASE 161.—Private Norman Boyd, Co. B, 1st Conn. Heavy Art., was admitted July 25, 1864, in moribund condition; tongue dark brown, dry and cracked; sordes on teeth; involuntary passages from bowels. He died comatose next day. Post-mortem examination five hours after death: Body not much emaciated. The lungs were engorged and the pleuræ adherent. Peyer's glands were slightly ulcerated for the space of eight inches above the ileo-cæcal valve, and extending for six inches below it were twenty or thirty ulcers, several of which nearly perforated the intestine; the rest of the intestine was apparently healthy.—Fairfax Seminary Hospital, Va.
