When Indiana Jones was struck down with typhoid fever in 1910, James Morton was brought by Ah Pin and Helen Seymour to treat him but the three day ride it took to get to the village where Indiana was bedridden had forced his mother find another doctor in Wen Ch-Iu.
On his arrival, Morton diagnosed Indiana with typhoid and commended Doctor Wen Ch-Iu on his abilities.
