The appellant tenders issues of fact, upon which the weight of the evidence, to say the least, is overwhelmingly against him. Whether his condition was infectious, in the light of his history of veneral infection and the symptoms of genito-urethral inflammation, or traumatic, and whether he forfeited his right to maintenance and cure by wilful concealment of his condition and his recent medical history, were, viewed in the light most charitable to him, no more than issue of fact which have been resolved against him.
