Mr. F. H. Hodges, House Surgeon to the Birmingham and Midland Eye Hospital, publishes a case of Hysterical closure of one eyelid, which was cured by galvanism.

In addition to real hysterical fits, we have sometimes to deal with an imitation. It is not at all uncommon to meet with young women who, to gain some object, pretend to be seized with hysterical fits. I have known several instances of the kind. I recollect one young woman, living in a country village in England, who, whenever she happened to be at nightfall at a distance from home, (having, perhaps, attended a fair, a show, or a merry-meeting of some kind), and not wishing to go home in the dark, would throw herself down on the ground, outside the door of some house, and begin kicking and screaming. Of course, those who did not know her would take her in, and send for a medical man. I got taken in by her once myself, and, after riding three miles at night, spent three or four hours trying to bring her to. The second time I knew my patient, and a single basin of cold water dashed in her face put her into a condition to travel.
