James Joynes, aged 12, was bitten by an ass, on each side of the

middle finger; the wounds were severe, and almost immediately

followed by swelling and great pain. The lunar caustic was well

applied within half an hour after the accident.



On the succeeding day, the eschar was found to be quite adherent, and

the pain and swelling had subsided.



The eschar separated in about twelve days and the wounds were healed.
