Notes :

Where the ulcer has been deeper round the circumference, the destruction is in a circular or ringlike form, and hence the peculiar appearance of some of the skulls in our museums. There was a very good and characteristic specimen in Parkstreet Museum, now belonging to the Belfast College; and through the kindness of Dr. Cuming, who got photographs taken for me, I am enabled to exhibit them.—Page 67.
