Baltimore hospital, where, through
modern surgery, a new lip was given
to him, and he was sent home happy,
will return to that institution next
weel for further treatment.
Young Cronin said he had expe
rienced little pain while being treat
ed at the hospital.
"Only during the time that my arm
was bound to my chin did I feel very
uncomfortable." said he, "and atter
that I did not mind the treatment, be
cause 1 know it would beenfit me.
"I do not feel any different .now
than I did before I was bitten. I re
turned here recently, and will enter
the hospital for another operation."
Aftei Master Cronin reached tho
hospital on July C, 1904, an examina
tion revealed the fact that the entire
lower lip and chin had been bitten
off. and even the periosteum of the
lower jaw had been stripped in place«.
Accordingly, a large flap was dis
sected from the right upper arm. Th's
flap, which included skin and subcu
taneous tissues, was about 12 cent!
meleis in length. Its under surfacco
and the raw surface of the arm from
which it was taken were covered with
grafts removed from the thighs, and
at the end of ten days a flap with skin
on both sides had been secured.
