Abstract

Dear Sir:  —I am desirous of obtaining facts regarding the relation of opium inebriety in mothers to infantile mortality.Dr. Frank B. Earle, of Chicago, informed me that he "recently attended a woman taking about twelve grains of morphia daily, who has lost four successive babies between the second and fourth day, all having died in collapse." If any reader of your journal will furnish me details of a similar case, I will much appreciate his courtesy and give him full credit.
