Missing first volume. Plaintiff is the administrator of Mrs. Lucy Lewis dec., who was a patient of the defendant. The defendant is charged with negligence for carelessly burning the deceased on the front part of her body, which caused injury to her skin and internal organs while giving treatment. He was treating her for a skin condition and failed to properly diagnose her and therefore gave a too frequent and high intensity X-ray treatment.
