During the succeeding night an attack of delirium, which caused him to fall out of bed, on his face, as a consequence of this, a very abundant bleeding from the nose,

Loss of mind,

His mind was unsteady,

Wildness of manners,

Symptoms were somewhat of a hysterical character (after a few hours),

In about five minutes he became "wild, and didn't know any one." In ten minutes I found him seated in a chair, leaning forward on his knees, staring wildly, countenance bathed in perspiration, pupils largely dilated, talking vaguely, and perfectly unconscious of surrounding objects, pulse 90 and full, hands and arms convulsed, every few moments legs unable to support his body, and dragged after him when we tried to get him to walk,

Sometimes she would appear for a moment to be relieved from her anxiety, and sit silent, with her eyes fixed on the ground, as if absorbed in contemplation; whilst her hands were employed in picking at the clothes, or anything that happened to be before her, similar to those in the last stage of some fevers.

The first symptom was a high degree of exhilaration, in which she caused much merriment by her extravagant gestures and speeches. This soon became alarming, and when I was called to see her, she was laughing, crying, and singing, by turns, proceeding from one to the other state with the greatest rapidity. She occasionally started with great force and alarm, crying out that she was going to fall, when she would cling to her mother with as much desperation as if she were about to be thrown from a precipice. She would next become calm, then whistle, and afterwards point with her finger at muscae volitantes, which she followed with the eye and hand, at last clutching at them, with an appearance of disappointment at want of success,

The child was to all appearance happy, talking all the incoherent nonsense that can be imagined, laughing, and in constant motion; but labored under so great a debility, that it could not stand or walk without tottering, and several times in attempting it fell down; it was a perfect delirium mite,

She was first discovered after drinking the tea, wandering in the backyard scrambling along the fence, as if trying to get hold of something indistinctly visible, for being called to account for her strange behavior, she could give no reply, but slavered and muttered as if drunk. She appeared foolish, had the peculiar facetious leer often observed in drunkenness. If let alone, she continued clawing everything within reach, and seemed inclined to constant motion,

When pinched or tickled, he became very angry, and muttered incoherently, turning upon his face and kicking backward, with alternate movements of the feet,

Very passionate and great feebleness (second day),

The child wanted to bite and strike at those around her,

They got wild, ran about the room, jumping, talking nonsense; saw chickens and cats, spoke to them, also to their toys,

Their attention could not be aroused to anything which was said, and they resisted all attempts at interference with piteous cries and violent struggling,

Child so wild and restless as to be controlled with difficulty, and in raging delirium, biting with fury at those who restrained him,

Very noisy when shaken, and sat up with his eyes open, with a fixed dilated pupil, quite insensible to a lighted candle,

He made numerous signs which could not be interpreted by those about him,

Some had twitchings, startings, and catching at imaginary objects, and other symptoms of cerebral disturbance. In all the graver cases, the stage of excitement was succeeded by excessive drowsiness and depression of pulse, with much prostration,

Restless, uneasy, tossing, throwing herself suddenly forward; striving to get out of bed; grasping with her hands vaguely, as though under the influence of spectral illusions; picking at the bedclothes,

While sitting on a sofa, fancied she was falling off, kept holding on to everything; at the same time was sick, about 2 P.M.,

In his conscious moments he asked to be held because he was falling,

There seemed at times to be motions indicating that the patient thought she was falling, and used every exertion to prevent it,

Constant staring about, then a fixed gaze (in one direction) for one or two minutes, with sudden startings (not interrupting the fixed look) of the arms and lower extremities, accompanied with low mutterings, then sudden and furious screaming, biting, scratching, and tearing with the hands, and kicking (after six hours),

She appeared occupied with hallucinations, her gaze was fixed, and she seemed trying to reach towards something which she saw,

For some days the patient was affected with hallucinations, and thought that one side of him was alive, while the other side was buried,

At times, when under the influence of the poisons, she seemed to herself to be engaged in her usual avocation, and would thus thread her needle, tie the knot at the end, and imitate in every respect the routine procedure of one thus engaged,

At one time the child seemed to hear and paid attention when spoken to, at other times paid no attention, and seemed unconscious, and was, apparently, occupied with hallucinations and fancies,

Subsultus tendinum, picking about the bedclothes, and grasping at random around her,

The limbs were motionless and paralyzed; the arms, on the contrary, were constantly reaching forwards and upwards, with an uncertain tremulous motion, as if the patient were endeavoring to seize some object, which he indistinctly perceived in the air,

When roused he seemed bewildered, and would not give any account of himself. He could stand when placed upon his legs; but groped about and caught at imaginary objects, as patients are observed to do in cases of poisoning by Belladonna Belladonna,
