Excerpt from The London Lancet, 1852, Vol. 2: A Journal of British and Foreign Medical, Surgical, and Chemical Science; Criticism, Literature, and News
Having dissected the other extremity for par ticular purposes, foreign to the examination into the cause of death, a semi-transparent membranous bag, containing good pus, was found accidentally on the tibialis posticus muscle. The blood in the periumal vein outside of it was coagulated there were little or no marks of inﬂammation, and the matter appeared to have been deposited without any. The inner side of the soleus muscle seemed simply to be discoloured.
The first edition having been published before the battle of Waterloo, the Opinions and facts stated therein became matters for public discus sion, and the reports made by my friends from Brussels, Antwerp, Yarmouth, and Colehester, confirmed all the facts, and I may add all the opinions of the slightest importance. They were published in the second edition in 1820, and were insisted upon in the third, published June 18, 1827.
