This little monograph of sixty-four pages is an amplification of a paper read before the Medical Society of London, and published in the Lancet for November 14, and 21, 1892. The author's purpose is to show " that the symptoms of influenza are owing to the action in the system of a special poison secreted by a pathogenous bacillus; that this poison has a special affinity to a definite centre of the nervous system, which is irritated and depressed by it, that an antidote which is able to neutralize the effects of the poison is formed in the blood of the patient, and tends to effect a spontaneous cure of the disease; and that the nearest approach to this antidote which we at present possess appears to be animal vaccine lymph."
