President Garfield’s Condition: August 8, 1881, 7:00 PM
7.00 P. M.
After the last bulletin was issued the President suffered somewhat for a time from nausea due to the ether, but this has now subsided. He has had several refreshing naps, and his general condition is even better than might have been expected after the etherization and operation. At noon his pulse was 104; temperature, 100.2°; respiration, 20. At present his pulse is 108; temperature, 101.9°; respiration, 19. Under the circumstances the fever must be regarded as moderate.
