A brief account is given of thirteen observations, carefully analysed, in which symptoms of illness followed upon characteristic dreams on an average forty-eight hours later, e.g. (1) a little girl, set. 3½ years, dreams that she is asleep in a closed copper bed, and that a carpenter who looks like her doctor fixes a vice by her bedside and squeezes her head in it. She shortly after developed a febrile illness which proved to be meningitis. (2) A lady, æt. 41 years, dreamt that her neighbour came to see her with a serpent coiled about her neck, which entered her (the lady's) mouth and tried to come out by the ear. In order to protect her own child, which she thought was lying by her side, she compressed her own ear to keep in the serpent. She was bitten by it, and could hear the hissing of the infuriated reptile. Three days later she had a purulent discharge from the ear.
