I was called January 26, 1879, to attend J. T., (colored) aged 64 years. He had been a slave in Virginia, but escaped when quite a young man. His health had always been good; he was a laborer; he was married many years ago, but his wife had had no children by him. He could not remember of ever having been sick, but was a very hard-working man, often engaging in heavy work such as he obtained at wharfs. He was also engaged often in moving furniture. For the most part he was accustomed to walk two and three miles to and from his work instead of riding, and this practice he continued daily.
When first called (January 26, 1879), I learned that the patient that morning arose early and had been to a baker's shop about a mile from his house.
