Case of the Late J. C. Prescott, M.D

T. Haynes
1844 Boston Medical and Surgical Journal  
this amiable and excellent young man ; yet there his widowed wife left his bones. Those who recollect him and his fate will feel a tearful eye, if they do not drop a tear. The mother of these two young men is still living, arid never was consumptive. Their father died many years since, but not with consumption. And the grand parents on the side of both father and mother never had any phthisical complaint. So that the disease was filial or fraternal, rather than hereditary, in these cases.
