Physicians Announce a Slight Operation on President’s
Buffalo, Sept. 10.—A bulletin was
issued by the physicians at 10:30 p. m. The condition of the president
is unchanged in all important particulars. His temperature is 100.6;
pulse 114; and respiration 28.
When the operation was done Friday
last it was noted the bullet had carried with it a short distance
beneath the skin a fragment of the president’s coat. This foreign
material was, of course, removed, but a slight irritation of the
tissues was produced, evidence of which appeared only to-night.
It had been necessary on account of this slight disturbance to remove
a few stitches and partially open the skin wound. This incident
cannot give rise to other complications but it is communicated to
the public as the surgeons in attendance wish to make the bulletins
In consequence, this is a separation
of the edges of the surface wound, and the healing of the same will
be somewhat of a delay.
The president is now well enough to
begin to take nourishment by the mouth in the form of pure beef
Buffalo, Sept. 11.—At 3:15 a. m.
everything was quiet around the Milburn house. No one appeared to
be stirring within and no one had left the house since the issuance
of the midnight bulletin.
Buffalo, Sept. 10.—The house is very
quiet. There were a few callers early in the evening. The president
is said to be resting comfortably.
