President Garfield’s Condition: July 28, 1881, 12:30 PM
12.30 P. M.
The President bore the dressing of his wound this morning with less fatigue than hitherto. It appears well, and is discharging sufficiently. Shortly afterwards his bed was rolled into an adjoining room while that occupied till now is being thoroughly cleansed and put in order. His pulse is now 94; temperature 98.5°; respiration 18.
