Hartshorn, Okla., May 4, 1908.

To the Editor:  —Dr. Morgan, in his article on "Treatment of Eclampsia" in The Journal, May 2, 1908, makes no mention of apomorphin in that condition, and I do not remember ever having seen this drug mentioned in this connection. I have used it in 1/10 grain doses, repeated if necessary in an hour, with uniformly good results; and some of my colleagues have also used it with the same results in most cases. This amount, 1/10 grain, is sufficient, and no ill effects have yet resulted in my practice. I would advise every physician who fails to control this condition with other drugs to give apomorphin a trial.
