" She runs to the nursery, finds her child sleeping softly, and hopes she may be mistaken. But, remaining to tend him, before long the ringing cough, a single cough, is repeated again and again ; the patient is roused, and then a new symptom is remarked ; the sound of his voice is changed ; puling, and as if the throat were swelled, it corresponds with the...

In all these respects, the condition of the patient presented a complete contrast to that which preceded the cold washing; and his languor was exchanged for a considerable share of vigour.
