      January  10 1872               Onadmission.  He is a short man withgrizzled hair & beard is well nourished,
      but somewhat flabby. He is in a condition of very peculiar excitement with Choreic movementof the whole body.  The movements seemnever to cease by night or day & they seem to be more methodical ®ular than the true Chorea.  The limbs& the muscles of the face & neck seem equally affected.  He does not appear able to speakintelligently but makes a barking sort of sound when he tries to do so – as arule he appears to pay little or no attention to what is said to him.
      It is necessary to cover the floor of his room withbeds to prevent injury to himself from the jerking movements.  He seems able to take only very smallquantities of fluids owing to the incessant restlessness and possibly somedifficulty in swallowing.  Tong clean.Pulse  weak but not very rapid.
       
      Following are a series of entries describing conditionand treatment.  Until on 24 Aug 1872 itis recorded  “He gradually became worse& died at 1.15 pm”.
