Abstract

The following case fell under my observation in the Marine Hospital Ward of the Providence Hospital: Captain Wharton, of the steam tug Clara Uhler, was brought to the hospital at 7:30 p.m., December 14, 1883. It appeared on inquiry of the Pilot who accompanied him, that about 6 o'clock in the morning, the tug was lying in her berth at Shamrock Wharf, lower Potomac, and the Captain was asleep in his cabin, the engineer attempting to get under way, a pipe blew out and threw with great force the steam and hot water through the bulkhead on to the Captain and scalded him about the body, face and limbs, and he inhaled much of the steam. As the tug was disabled, the patient was compelled to wait four hours on board before he could proceed up the river. He arrived at Alexandria at 5 P.M. where a physician was sent
