Philadelphia, July 22, 1895.
To the Editor:
—Under Philadelphia Notes in your issue of July 20, you record a case of recovery from 15 grains corrosive sublimate.Some five or six years ago one of my patients, a young married woman, in a fit of jealousy, swallowed two tablets of corrosive sublimate, grs. 7.7 each, with suicidal intent. Fortunately I was promptly called, was in the house within twenty minutes, and by the use of emetics followed by egg albumen, succeeded in saving the patient.There was no salivation, but a subacute gastritis lasting about ten days resulted.Respectfully yours,
