President Garfield’s Condition: September 5, 1881, 6:30 PM
6.30 P. M.
No material change has taken place in the condition of the President since morning. The parotid abcess continues to improve, and the wound remains about the same. The pulse is somewhat less frequent than at noon. At present it is 108; temperature, 99.8°; respiration, 18. Should no untoward symptoms prevent, it is hoped to move the President to Long Branch to-morrow.
