In various cases, the author has noted at the moment of death a cænæsthesic sensation—doubtless associated with arrest of motor, respiratory, and circulatory functions—which is not without interest. The cases here described were mostly tuberculous, and included individuals of both sexes, and of atheistic as well as religious beliefs. In all the cases, the last sensation to which expression was given was one of flying, of moving upwards. In some cases death was peaceful, in others painful. In one case a girl died clasping the iron bars of the bed, in horror of being borne upwards.
