I, Mary Peterson, of Wilmington, Delaware, aged 44
years, was taken with a scrofulous disease about July, 18_'3,
which commenced with a severe pain in the side ; and
about the latter end of September and beginning of Octo

head. f 1
In the spring oi 1824, n lump made its appearance on tiie

neck shortly disappeared, but in tbe fall of {he same year ft
ulcerated m the leti shoulder, and continued with inces
sant pain, followed by an enlargement of the breast on the
same aide of the body; shortly after, two lumps appeared
on the left side of the neck. r 1
Two respectable surgeons of Delaware performed an op

situation became very alarming. The pain and torments J
endured day and night were indescribable. I iiad to take

and fop eighteen months l could not move my lett arm, but

Mr. Albright,
SIR My son, Stephen, aged 13 year«, Was taken ftilbH
■"tv. 1 # pain ill die inslep of his right foot in September
i8-3. In October followi,ig it swelled very much. Aphj^B
mean ordered bread and milk poultices to be appliei'H
winch reduced the swelling. Sunn after the capofibB
knee swelled up considerably ; poultices were again appliH
ed, which reduced die swelling. A large lamp made
appearance on die shin; in a very short time his leg swellH
ed to double its ordinary size, was very much inflamed, anlH
i.ad a purple appearance The boy buffered the most i
deacriable pains, and from ihe loss of bis appetite and
Ot sleep, he became so debilitated and helpless, that he had
to he fed like an intiint. At length die swelling opened, and
produced a copious discharge of matter, accompanied with
a very offensive smell. The physician lanced the leg al
different limes, in various places, and attended him fotup*
wards of three mom lis, and got lum so far as to be enabled
to move about on crutches In a very short time the paim
almost entirely lett him. he could walk very well williou!
the use of crutches, the swelling continued, and the leg
broke out into ulcers.
In die summer of 182G, his shin bone became affected,
accompanied with a very offensive smell ; small splinted
ut bones would occasionally workout; his leg, from the
c u p ot the knee to his ankle, was one ulcerated mass of
corruption, und the bone was in a slate of rottenness. Fhv
scians who saw the case while in this situation, gave it is
the.r opinion that he could only be cured by laviifg the leg
open to the bone, and taking off uie affected parts, which
would be a paint ul, as well as a very dangerous operation.
