6 P. M.
Though the gravity of the President’s condition continues, there has been no aggravation of symptoms since the noon bulletin was issued. He has slept most of the time, coughing but little, and with more ease. The sputa remains unchanged. A sufficient amount of nourishment has been taken and retained.
Temperature, 98.4°; pulse, 102; respiration, 18.
