Edinburgh Medical Journal, 1895 free pdf Excerpt from Edinburgh Medical Journal, 1895 This he did, with the result that whilst there he was apparently in perfect health, but the moment he resumed work there was the old complaint of the great feeling of oppression on the top of the head, and a general aspect of depression, which showed itself in his hanging head and altered, downcast gait as he walked through the streets. I saw him as a patient again on April 14th, and prescribed some acid tonic with liq. strychnine, advised him to get assistance in his business, and gave him 30 grs. of bromide of potassium to be taken at night to induce sleep. I met him accidentally about the beginning of June, and again finally pled with him to go abroad, but only with the effect of increasing his obstinacy, for he flatly informed me he would not go. On Sunday morning, June 11th, about 8 A.M., two hurried messages arrived to go at once to the patients house- and as the second of these indicated what had happened, I sent a messenger in a cab to Prof. Annandale, so that we arrived almost simultaneously. His mother, the only responsible person in the house, informed us that it was his usual custom to rise early on a Sunday morning and go over to his garden, and then return to breakfast Being a little later than usual, she knocked at his door to inquire how he was, but was informed that he only wanted to be left alone. A minute or two after she heard a report, and entering the room found her son lying stretched out on bed with a smoking revolver in his hand, and a hole in his forehead, from which a tremendous amount of blood was rapidly flowing. With extraordinary presence of mind she removed the weapon and bound up the head with a pledget of cotton wool and a bandage, and sent first for a friend and then for medical assistance. Before this gentleman arrived, without any aid twice did the patient walk to the bath-room, lock the door, and attend to himself- and when the revolver was lifted, cried out to his friend, "For God's sake, man, be careful that no one is hurt, for it is loaded." The day previously he had been at his work as usual, had attended to the payment of the men under him, and on the afternoon went a drive into the country with some friends, when he seemed perfectly happy and in his ordinary health and spirits. In every ones opinion he was the last person in the world to associate with suicide- and except for a growing irritability in temper, was the sanest man in the world, with no delusions whatever other than that his work was too heavy for him. We found him in a state of considerable collapse, hands and body cold, face deadly pale, pulse extremely slow, but of fair volume, and with, for the size of the bullet, a very large entrance wound exactly in the centre of the forehead. There was no visible blackening of the skin, singeing of hair, or burning of the edges of the wound with the powder. The scalp was torn quadrilaterally, and the edges, 1 1/4 inch long, inverted- and there was most extensive fracture and comminution of bone.
