Was born in Dublin, Ireland; when he was 17 years old, he entered on board a ship of war, and was at the siege of Carthagena; when, by an accident, four cartridges took fire, and burnt him, especially around his breast, in a terrible manner. This burn was, for many years, a bad sore, and it had at last healed up, when it was again unfortunately hurt. As the bruise was getting well again, a small horn, the size of a thumbnail, appeared on the part, which has since continued to increase so much in size, as to render three amputations necessary. From December 1794, to August 1795, it had grown rather more than two inches in length. A piece of this horn is in the Museum, amongst the Anatomical articles. [P. 55.]
