(From the Hebrew term chirah). Anger quickens the pulse, and hurries respiration, and for a time increases the tone of the whole system. The stomach and bowels are greatly affected; and a stricture on the gall ducts is sometimes produced, so that a jaundice is the consequence; though more frequently the gall is determined more copiously to the duodenum, producing disagreeable complaints in the bowels . Anger also produces haemorrhages from the nose, the lungs, the vessels of the brain occasioning apoplexy, and the haemorrhoidal vessels, particularly in those who are disposed to these evacuations.

During the fit of anger, or its immediate effects, it is said that vomits and purges should be avoided, though few take them in a passion; nor can we see what injury would be produced if they were given.

Anger, called justly"a short madness," will gradually cool; and should any bad effects be left, they must be treated according to their nature.
