Side 143 - The debility, both moral and physical, attendant on its excitement, is terrible ; the appetite is soon destroyed, every fibre in the body trembles, the nerves of the neck become affected, and the muscles get rigid; several of...
Side 401 - To embody them in one view, let the reader fancy to himself a young or middleaged woman, somewhat reduced in flesh and health, almost living on her sofa for months, or even years, from a constant pain in the uterus, which renders her unable to sit up and take exercise ; the uterus, on examination, unchanged in structure, but exquisitely tender ; even in the recumbent posture always in pain, but subject to great aggravations more or less frequently.

Side 401 - ... the complaint of which I am speaking, the recumbent posture, although it diminishes, does not remove the pain. It is always present in some degree, and severe paroxysms often occur, although the patient has been recumbent for a long time. If the uterus is examined, it is found to be exquisitely tender, the...
Side 547 - No tolls shall hereafter be imposed on persons or property transported on the canals, but all boats navigating the canals and the owners and masters thereof, shall be subject to such laws and regulations as have been or may hereafter be enacted concerning the navigation of the canals.
Side 302 - The effects of remedies on a disease, if accurately observed, form the most important part of its history: they are like chemical tests, frequently detecting important differences in objects, which previously appeared exactly similar.
