Eighth report, Chinese Repository, Vol. 7, 1838-1839, p. 99: “No 5075, Yin Youwei, aged 30, a farmer of Nanhae, had a tumor three inches diameter, beneath his right ear, in an inflamed state, very painful, and fast tending to suppuration. This was also removed on the 25th April in six minutes. The adhesion was rather firm to the integument above, and to the angle of the jaw. The submaxillary gland was exposed to view. In fifteen days the patient was discharged quite well.” Donated by Peter Parker to the Yale School of Medicine and transferred to the Historical Library.
