AUTOPSY REPORT: In the case of John Wilson, Private, 4th Light Dragoons, of intemperate habits; who died with obscure symptoms, probably dependant on lesions found in the head, the mucous lining of the stomach presented an appearance similar to that of the colon in the case just reported [refer William Nash]. It is thus described in my notes: `Internal coat throughout, but more especially towards the pyloric end of the stomach, papillous and considerably thickened; the papillae very distinct. In some places the membrane firmer and more strongly adherent to the subjacent tissues, but towards the pylorus it was softened. At the cardiac end there was a considerable patch, where the mucous coat was thinner and softer than natural. - During the coarse of the disease, there had been irritability of stomach.
