Çb) R. B. a boy aged eleven, was feized with a headach and fever. 
Monday, he complained of a fliarp pain in his right fide, on which 
account near eight ounces of blood were taken from him. On 
Tuefday, his head was eafier, but the pain in the fide continued ; 
his pulfe beat 120 times in a minute. This evening, a blifier was
