"Col. Roosevelt spent a very comfortable day. He suffered
less to-night and his breathing was not so painful.
"There is no evidence of complications. '
"A preventive injection of anti-tetanus serum was ad
ministered to-night, thus lessening the likelihood of lockjaw.
The leucocyte count is .88, showing that no blood poisoning is
present at this time.
"His superb physical condition, due to his outdoor exercise
and habitual abstinence from liquor and tobacco as well m his
simplicity of diet, accounts for the small effect produced on him
during his long speech while suffering from such a severe wound.
"The bullet has not dropped down, but is still in the wall
of the chest. His breathing appears to be getting easier all the
