Elizth Paton, Aged 20 was taken in Labour on the 30th January . “I was sent for about 5 o’clock in the morning and found the os uteri dilated to about the size of a shilling. At 7 the membranes were ruptured and the pains became more and more severe – At a little before 8, she was safely delivered of a male infant.
March 7th The child was found to waste, and as there was a good nurse on board, who had more milk than was required by her own child, she desired to give her the breast twice or three times in 24 hours.
March 20 She gradually gains strength.
