Case 17. - Private George Damon, Co. C, 14th Vt.; age 24; was taken sick Feb. 20, 1862, with jaundice. While convalescing he was admitted, March 6, with headache and a dry cough with bronchial rales. Next day the eruption of measles was apparent over the whole surface; pulse 100; thirst; cough dry; throat sore; bowels confined; urine high-colored. His case progressed favorably until the 14th, when the velum palati and arches became swollen and Ted and the voice whispering.
