I The personal history of the patient as given shows no inciting causes of suflicient importance to account for the appearance of epilepsy. On the father's side there is undoubtedly a nervous taint but the cases of epilepsy are not closely enough related to the patient to consider the trait inheritable. The pi1ti01lt,5 mother, however, belongs to a feeble-minded and neurotic strain and the result is a double heredity of defect.
