Sciatic Rheumatism and Other Ills

In September, 1893, I began to suffer from sciatic rheumatism. Shortly after the first attack I was carried home one night from my engine-room after having a hypodermic injection of morphine administered. I remained in bed for two or three weeks and then returned to work, using a cane, as I was very lame. I remained in this condition until December of the same year, when I suffered an aggravated attack of spinal trouble and severe nervousness. My stomach and bowels became so diseased that I could not eat anything without the greatest suffering, and sleep was almost unknown to me. Medicine had no effect on me except to make me worse. I could only lie and think over the past, and became almost a fit subject for the asylum. The last disease confined me to my home for three years.

During this time I was constantly under the care of a physician. I had exhausted the skill of five of the best of our city, and my case was pronounced incurable.
