—Patients first seen seven weeks after vaccination. Vaccinifer four months old, healthy looking, vesicle eighth day lymph. To the vaccinator and the surgeon, she at the time the lymph was taken, bore the aspect of excellent health. All of the vesicles from which lymph was taken bled. Two months afterward Mr. Hutchinson saw vaccinifer. "My attention was, however, at once attracted to a slight peculiarity in the tint of her skin and to the look of her face; and although it was strongly denied that she had ever 'snuffled,' yet when she was made to cry I noticed a nasal twang which was very suspicious. On having her stripped, not a single spot of rash could be seen on her skin, but on inspecting the buttocks five small circular condylomata were discovered close to the anus, about which there could not be the slightest doubt.
