Post-mortem examination forty-eight hours after death: In the lower portion of the small intestine the peritoneal coat was much injected and readily peeled off, and the mucous membrane was extensively softened and ulcerated. The mesentery was considerably injected and the mesenteric glands much enlarged.—Third Division Hospital, Alexandria, Va.
