—April 10, 1909, Mrs. H., a woman aged 56, was admitted to the surgical ward of the Arnot-Ogden Hospital. The patient said she had been in poor health for two months past but had kept to her work, which was that of a forewoman in a knitting mill. Two weeks prior to her admission to the hospital, I was asked by her physician to see her in consultation at her home, as she had been ill of influenza for about a week and was having severe pain in the right ear. On examining the ear I found a small perforation in the lower posterior quadrant through which some pus was flowing. The upper part of the drum was highly inflamed and bulging Under local anesthesia I incised this freely and left the after-care of the patient to her physician. I did not see her agian until she was sent in on my service
