Scrofula, or King's Evil,
in a constitutional diving, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak, and poor. Being in the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
in disease on any part of it. No organ is fete
front its attacks, nor is there one which it may
not destroy. The scrofulous taint is variously
caused by mercuriel disease, low living, dis
ordered or unhealthy food, impure tic, filth
and filthy habits, the deprwring vices, and,
above all, by the venereal infection. What
ever ha its origin, it is hereditary - in she con
rtitution,deseending from parents to children
unto the third ;and fourth generation ;" indeed,
it comae to• be the rod of Slim who says, "1
will visit the iniquities of the fathers upon
their children."
Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lungs, liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercle.; in the glands, swellinga ; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This fool cor
ruption, which genders in tho blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
