Page 375 - Not only his mind, but many of his senses appeared at first to be in a state of torpor, and only gradually to open to the perception of external objects. It was not before the lapse of several days that he began to notice the striking of the steeple clock, and the ringing of the bells. This threw him into the greatest astonishment, which at first...
Page 258 - ... at both of these periods. The results of these examinations establish the correctness of the inferences drawn from a number of facts, but in a much more positive and precise manner, for they distinctly prove, first, that in the healthy and natural state, all that part of the rectum above its pouch, is at all times, with the single exception of a few minutes previous to evacuation of the bowels, firmly contracted and perfectly empty, at the same time that the pouch itself and also the sigmoid...

In his apartment, he never heard a sound, whether produced by a man, by an animal, or by anything else.
Page 375 - In his hole he had two wooden horses and several ribbons. With these horses he had always amused himself as long as he was awake ; and his only occupation was to make them run by his side, and to fix or tie the ribbons about them in different positions. "Thus one day had passed as the other; but he had never felt the want of anything, had never been sick, and, once only excepted, had never felt the sensation of pain.
Page 234 - ... respiration ; and this is a distinction which I wish to draw strongly and broadly. It is, I believe, a generally received opinion, that tubercles, by producing inflammation and suppuration, are the cause of phthisis. This I doubt, or even deny. I look on tubercular development and consumption as the consequences of that particular state of constitution, which occasions what is falsely termed tubercular inflammation, a state of constitution in which we have three distinct processes, attended with...
Page 429 - In one gentleman, the existence of one or more pouches of this kind became evident on injecting the bladder; twelve ounces of warm water could be thrown into it before much uneasiness was produced; but on drawing it off, ten ounces only could be obtained, and rarely the whole twelve even by any change of position.
