During convalescence a relapse occurred, accompanied by inflammation and suppuration of the parotid glands. He died November 21. Post-mortem examination eighteen hours after death: Extreme emaciation. The lungs were healthy. The pericardium contained about four ounces of serum. Nothing abnormal was noted in the liver; the gall-bladder was moderately filled with bile. The spleen was enlarged and softened. The intestines were distended with flatus; their peritoneal coat was highly injected and their mucous coat softened. The kidneys and bladder were healthy.—Third Division Hospital, Alexandria, Va.
