President Garfield’s Condition: July 28, 1881, 7:00 PM
7.00 P. M.
The President has passed a pleasant day, and has taken his nourishment with apparent relish. His temperature continued normal until about 5 o’clock, when a moderate afternoon rise occurred, which, however, gives the patient but slightly discomfort, and causes no anxiety. At present his pulse is 104; temperature, 100.5°; respiration, 20.
