Sort: Oldest first
Two meals given four hours apart; the first consists of moderate quantities of cold roast beef, a soft-boiled egg, rice, and milk; the second of stale white bread and water; the contents of the stomach, removed an hour after the second meal, should show no remains of the first meal if digestion is normal.
