Middletown, (Con.) July 12,1332. Dear Sfti—To me, and those of my medical brethren, who have been familiar with typhus svncopalis, and with other cool, sinking, febrile diseases, during tlio last twenty-five years, tho a Inrm which b prevailing on account of the appear ance of thcr cbolera, is a matter of surpriso and. regret. Ifrls a matter of surprise, that there should be so little accurato information upou tho subject, aud of regret, that tlicro should have ex isted so littlo curiosity to hecomo acquainted with the symptoms and treatment of a diseaso Which has frequently prevailed in -our country. This disenso is typhus syneopohs; sinking typhus; or, os it is often improperly called, spotted fever; a malady which at various limes has exhibited all tlio phenomena of raalignaut cholera, and iu tho worst cases, is probably full as rapid and severe and fatal. Tho only important difference which I can perceive between the two comnl-'n’s H till I had uSed eight or ten of them; aiu-rwurds easing off with the opirnm by taking* grain eve- ry two, three or four hours. I think I .was oMig- ed to continue the groin every four hours, for se veral day*. The first day, 1 drank perhaps a pint of brandy in tlio twenty-four hours. The sue* reeding aays.Iuscd about apinc each day of good Madeira. 1 was at New Londou, my own phy sician—and recovered so as to walk out in about five days. I considered this case,- from extVimf faintness, debility, coolness, &c. attending tho at ack, as severe as choje ra; and that I should prob ably havo died, hud 1 not begun within half an hour of the access. No temperate man should make any great or sudden change in his mode of living, orin his ha- liits, under tho idea of prevention. Families should he welt fed, well elm hod, continue without excess their customary food and dfink, and avoid any unnecessary purging and vomittiug, orrcduc- ing medicine of any kind. If a laxative is neces sary, in case of costivencss, an aloetic pill, or a moderate dose of elixir proprictalis, or compouud tincture of rhubarb, or calcined magnesia, is much better than salts, orscidlitz waters, or any other debilitating cathartic. For those who are feeble and are debilitated by hot weather, so as to appear predisposed to diseaso, a tea spoonful of tincture of the bark, two, three, or four times a day, iu half a glass of wine may be proper. Tlio well, however, need no medicine to make them better, or to protect them. Whether Cho lera is contagious or not, it is ovidently not a whjt mara M tbaa any nther Severn fever: and, ail indi vidual is no more likely to take the diseaso by watching with his friends or children, than he is liable to have typhus by tlio samo means. It is certainly not so infectious as dysentery. If I could be assured that I should not want for nurs ing, and that my physician was energetic, and uot more afraid of opium and alcohol, than of tho disease orof death itself, 1 would never (hi o from the complaint, because it might be ill my vicinity. On pagc*37and39 of iny pamphlet on typhus syncopatis, you will find two successful eases, which will exhibit tho outline of my views of treat ment of sinking typhus. I hope you will find leis ure to read the whole pamphlet which I now send -ton, with attention. In general, I imagino, cho lera requires a more energetic application of ex ternal hoat, than was ordinarily demanded, or ad- tnissahlo, iu our disease; though this is an essen tial means iu many of the sudden changes of sink ing-typhus. ' Cholera, like othor diseases, is modified hy cir cumstance*. In A*ia} it was t orcly followed hy fever, nnd when il was, it was n light bilious fever. In Europe, when not suddenly fatal, tho sequel is frequently a typhoid state, for a week, or long er, requiring, in my opinion, a continuation, though in a leu degree, of opium, alcohol, wine, aromatics, See. while tho fever lasts, with very groat caution as to cathartics, or any other redu cing process. In Eurqpe. there have boon many cases of tho epidemic without either of the symp tom* of vomiting or purging, These oro pure •inking typhus, iu tho worst dogreo. Yours, with scutimcuts of sincore respect nnd friendship, - THOMAS MINOR. From the same Physician. Middletown, July 12. In a sudden had case, 1 would begin With a lea-spoonful of laudnnum, or (if this is rejocted) with three grains of opium, and pursue it cveVy ten, fifteen or twenty miuntes, till all (ho symp tom* are controlled, assisting it with a» much botbraudy and water, doves, ginger mid penny royal tea, ns tho stomach will bear, with pepper mint. \\ hen tlio patient is relieved, a grain of opium should be. coutitiucd every three hours, sometimes for days. An old fmbioucd sweat is perhaps host at first; but wheu ihero is much spontaneous (wanting, dry hoat from bottles of hot water, hot bricks, hot fiat irons, or bags of hot sand, hot ashes, are preferable to warm the patient. No matter what is said about purging —diarrhoea is immediately to ho suppressed in these times, by takiug occasionally, any after ev ery evacuation, a grain of opium, and if olixti nate, a grain or two of capsicum, in pill, with it. And if a laxative hecomo* neccss^y from - cos- tiveuosj, a grain of opium is also to lie taken in the same way, to prevent iu working too much. Whore tho urine is suppressed, blisters should be successively applied inside tho thighs. To make blisters and sinapisms sure of taking'effect, they should havo their surface moistened with oil ol turpentine, but bo removed when they causo se vere pain, which is often tho enso. P. S.
