General Information:

Machakos - Daddy [P.H. Percival] once called on the Wilson brothers at Chumbi and found Berry trying to read Harry's temperature with an incubator thermometer. As the mercury moved down very fast when the thermometer was taken out Berry was on his knees by the bed trying to read it while in Harry's mouth. Berry was a strong man and had broken their only clinical thermometer when shaking it down at the outset of Harry's fever.
