"Remarks: The case reported (Wakes, stillborn) should not have been reported as it occurred during the autumn of 1878, as I learned from the attending physician, after the entry had been made. The case (John House) was a deliberate suicide. The party seated himself on a chair, placed the muzzle of the gun to his forehead and sprang the trigger with his foot, having knownly taken off this shoe, so as to have free use of toes. Though the person reported (Franklin, Harry) died at Bowling Green Ky, yet he was actually a member of the family __ _ on schedule ?, he being at the time of his death on a visit to his relatives at Bowling green. He had been an invalid nearly all his life."
