Fraser, Mich., Feb. 4, 1896.
To the Editor:
—Many of the conflicting reports of Woodbridge's treatment of typhoid fever would give results similar to those obtained by Dr. Woodbridge if they would use capsules instead of tablets. Take a bottle of tablets that has been carried in your rig some time, use your tablets all out; what have you left in your bottle? About one-eighth of your tablets in powder form. I have used in fifteen cases the Woodbridge treatment and have not lost a case that I have seen in the first ten days of the sickness. The following is the record of a unique case: Mr. A. H.,age 43 years. Seen Nov. 23,1895, 3 p.m.; temperature 103.5; this continued within less than ½ degree day and night until December 2, when he lost about three to four quarts of blood from bowel. Temperature 97 to 99 for two
