     At the meeting of the state medical society in New York, last week, Dr. Mann of Buffalo read a detailed report covering the medical and surgical history of the case of President McKinley. Dr. Mann did not mention the operation, omitting that altogether. He described the President’s symptoms and treatment from day to day, going into the fullest details. In speaking of the bulletins issued, he said that every one of them was absolutely true. He told of the progress of the patient till the unfavorable turn of the seventh day. Dr. Mann said that there was absolutely no bacteriological infection. Continuing, he said; “If you ask me what caused the President’s death, I could not tell you. I doubt if that will ever be discovered. Amongst contributory causes, however, were the president’s age, his lack of exercise, and his naturally weak heart, which made his pulse high.”
