Low grades of Inflammation

As well as Suppuration,

Cutaneous hyperesthesia seizes,

Harassing the subjects of diseases:

Erysipelas Diphtheria too:

Scarlatina, all purple in hue.

In Fevers running an asthenic course,

Sleeping, he wakes with symptoms much worse,

Tongue black, and trembling, Delirious Brain,

Raves of his death and his funeral train,

Imagines his nurses to poison him seek,

Glands swollen and pulse intermittent and week;

On the left side the troubles are often begun,

Next over to right side their course they will run,

After fall cinchonizing the Ague, suppressed,

Comes back in the spring with augmented zest;

Evening will find him with symptoms all worse;

Pneumonia or Asthma existence may curse.

Hemorrhage is black and does not congeal.

Apoplexy for cause will to whisky appeal.

Likewise in Gangrene with moist or dry rot;

Ulcers, when either in aged or not;

Spasmus Glottidis, Hysterical or not.
