CASE 58.—Private Jesse Cassel, Co. C, 179th Pa.; age 24; was admitted July 2, 1863, with typho-malarial fever, which, after a few days, became typhoid and accompanied with diarrhœa. Opiates and astringents failed to restrain the diarrhœa, which became colliquative. He died delirious, picking at the bedclothes, on the 26th. Post-mortem examination "revealed nothing but slight ulceration of Peyer's glands."—Ass't Surg. C. C. Lee, U. S. A., Douglas Hospital, Washington, D. C.
