Case 14.—Sergeant Horace Hammond, Co. F, 124th N. Y. Vols.; age 36; was admitted June 11, 1863, with typho-malarial fever. The patient had suffered with slight chills and feverishness, recurring several times during the day, for several days following June 8. On admission he had no intermittent symptoms and the case was supposed to be incipient typhoid, but its mixed character soon became evident. He was treated with milk-punch and beef-essence, to which, on August 22, quinine was added at the rate of sixteen grains daily. At the end of three weeks he was able to walk about, although weak and having a slight diarrhœal tendency. He was returned to duty August 24.—C. C Lee, Ass't Surg., U. S.
