This monograph is a paper read before the Ohio State Medical Society at its Fifty-second Annual Meeting at Cleveland, Ohio, May, 1897.
It is of great interest and well illustrated. The author concludes that in the case of aphasia, if the sanity of the individual is established any legal document should be recognized, when he can understand fully its nature by any receptive channel, viz., hearing, visionary or muscular senses, and can in addition express assent or dissent, whether this expression be by spoken speech or pantomime, or written speech: Opinions which must be regarded as sound.
