President Garfield’s Condition: September 1, 1881, 6:30 PM
6.30 P. M.
The condition of the President has not materially changed since the last bulletin, except that there has been a moderate rise of temperature this afternoon. It having been represented to us that a portion of this morning’s bulletin has been misunderstood, we would state that the President has had no rigors for several weeks. At present his pulse is 108; temperature, 99.4°; respiration, 18.
