Following the cases of pneumonia reported in Dr. Galbraith's article in The Journal Feb. 10, 1906, I have had many other cases, in all of which I have treated the patients according to Dr. Galbraith's method, but with a very much better result.
Pneumonia is a very prevalent disease in Nogales and vicinity. My mortality in pneumonia cases was formerly nearly 80 per cent. So fatal had the disease become that all persons possessing enough of this world's goods to carry them to the sea level refused to remain here after becoming aware of the nature of their affliction. The results reported in the following cases, I am pleased to state, are the rule and not the exception. Thus far I have not had a death from pneumonia since I began the quinin treatment according to Dr. Galbraith's method.
