Excerpt from Minutes of the Proceedings of the Fourteenth Annual Meeting of the Medical Society of the State of North Carolina: Held at Tarboro, N. C., 15th May, 1867

I made experiments upon seven animals during the war. Five of them were young cows, or heifers, which were furnished me by the Commissary department by order of the Surgeon General. They were kept at Howard's Grove, in the immediate vicinity of the small-pox Hospital. From the latter place I procured variolous virus in the form of lymph and crust. This I inserted into the udder by making light incisions and rubbing it into them while in the liquid state, by dipping threads into the lymph and passing them by means of a needle under the integument and finally by making punctures with a lancet and introducing pieces of crust: but all these attempts utterly failed. In two instances pustules were produced, followed by thin yellow crusts, which were evidently spurious results.
