The sense of smell underwent a very singular perversion. Every kind of roast meat, if ever so slightly burnt, roasted coffee, tea, etc., had to my patient an intolerable putrid odor.

roast mutton was especially offensive. Scents and perfumes with alcohol gave an odor resembling that of hemlock.

on the other hand, putrid and fecal matter had no apparent odor at all,.

The perversion of taste was not less remarkable than that of smell. Roast meats and crusts of bread were intolerable.

and most foods had a burnt taste, especially raw oysters, which resembled burnt flour, and felt quite dry, clinging to the mouth. Things naturally insipid, such as the crumb of bread and Solanum Tuberosum potato, gave a more natural flavor, and were better relished. Acids did not taste acid, nor alkalies alkaline, and to him quinine was not bitter,.

A gradual improvement was made for the first two months, but too early a return to business brought on an attack of illness of extreme severity. The patient was seized with symptoms resembling the onset of Influenzinum influenza.

when this subsided, nausea and retching ensued.

the pulse rose to 120 or 130. There was some febrile movement.

the skin was alternately very dry and moist. During this secondary attack the liver again evinced a sluggishness of action, and the urine, which had hitherto been normal in quantity, became excessive.

on one occasion, seven pints were passed in five hours. For fourteen days the patient was confined to his bed, when the intensity of the symptoms had subsided, he still complained of the gnawing pain in the stomach,.

The collapse had become extreme.

the face and extremities were purple, and the voice thick and husky, and subsiding into a hoarse whisper.

the heart's action quite imperceptible, both at the wrist and cardiac region, yet the state of things was more like that of a cholera patient than one in syncope.

he died without a spasm or struggle of any kind, retaining his consciousness to the last (after seven hours, and forty minutes),.

Vomited the contents of the stomach (immediately).

less vomiting, but still a little retching, with which she brought up a little mucus (third day).

Spontaneous vomiting (after one hour).

after this time the mixture (eggs and milk) was thrown off instantly, after being taken by the most violent action.

it returned as a solid coagulated mass, one portion of which was so large and firm as almost to cause suffocation. This treatment was kept up through the night and until 2 P.M. of the following day, the patient vomiting continuously, and rejecting the milk and eggs in the same curdled state. In the evening blood appeared in the vomiting matter, a quantity of mucus, and a portion of mucous membrane, measuring an inch and a quarter square.
