Էջ viii - Thus with the year Seasons return ; but not to me returns Day, or the sweet approach of even or morn, Or sight of vernal bloom, or summer's rose, Or flocks, or herds, or human face divine ; But cloud instead, and ever-during dark Surrounds me, from the cheerful ways of men Cut off, and for the book of knowledge fair Presented with a universal blank Of nature's works to me expung'd and ras'd, And wisdom at one entrance quite shut out.
Էջ 712 - I have generally found that two grains of calomel with a quarter of a grain of opium, three times a day...
Էջ 302 - In a few cases, it has been necessary to increase the quantity of turpentine to an ounce and a half or two ounces in the above mixture, the other ingredients being proportionally diminished, so that a drachm and a half or two drachms of it may be taken each time ; but in general, when administered to the extent directed in this formula, it has very seldom indeed failed, though extensively tried, and in very urgent cases : the instances of its failure shall be presently noticed.
Էջ 679 - This lower tumour could be emptied or pressed back into the orbit, but the pulsation then became violent; and from the increased pressure of the globe upon the roof and side of the orbit, the pain was insupportable. Careful compression of the temporal, angular, and maxillary arteries produced no effect on the aneurism. Upon applying my thumb to the trunk of the common carotid, I found the pulsation cease altogether, and the whiz of the little swelling was rendered so exceedingly faint, that it was...
Էջ 546 - ... leeches to be doubled. Six, therefore, were applied ; they bled copiously : but when the medical attendants assembled in the evening, they found the aspect of the case totally altered, and that for the worse ; the child was deadly pale, it had scarcely any pulse, its skin was cold, the pupils were dilated and motionless when light was allowed to fall on them, and when a watch was held to its eyes it seemed not to see ; there was no squinting. Did this state of vision depend on the pressure...
Էջ 562 - I do not know any green in the world ; a pink colour and a pale blue are alike, I do not know one from the other. A full red and a full green the same, I have often thought them a good match; but yellows (light, dark and middle) and all degrees of blue, except those very pale, commonly called sky, I know perfectly well, and can discern a deficiency, in any of those colours, to a particular nicety: a full purple and deep blue sometimes baffle me.
Էջ 463 - ... of the left hand, till at length, by an occasional and gentle increase of the pressure, or by varying its direction, the iris gradually protrudes, so as to present a bag of the size of a large pin's head. This protruded portion must be cut off with a pair of fine curved...
Էջ 678 - ... which was attended with pain, and followed by a copious effusion of a limpid fluid into the cellular substance of the eye-lids on the same side. For some days preceding she had complained of a severe pain in the head, which was now increased to so great a degree, that, for the space of a week, she was unable to raise it from the pillow. The...
Էջ 553 - The pain, not then so severe, consisted in violent occasional pricking or darting sensations in the left temple and parts round the eye. There was discharge from the lower eyelid. The first molar tooth of the left side was carious ; it had not caused much uneasiness ; and the toothache, when it existed, had not coincided with the pains in the temple and eye. The Professor determined on removing this tooth, and having done so, was surprised to see a small foreign body at the extremity of the fang....
