Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ...hundred and fifty babies of normal mothers and the fifty babies of mothers with a postpartum temperature, was approximately the same, namely, 3"Jti1 grxuiH. The babies of gonorrheal mothers weighed sit birth, on the average, 1297-grams, or U97 grams below the normal. While their average birth weight is apparently lowered by a greater number of premature infants televen), attention is also called to the fact that the average weight of the thirty-nine babies at term is M0T4 grams, or 19i grams below the normal.
