in consequence of the missive, Wow, what a connection! I'd love to know..., penned by Line
JAMES'S Powder ,though confessedly beneficial in certain stages of inflammatory diseases,has,not unfrequently, vomited, purged or sweated to death persons labouring under low malignant and putrid fevers,who might have been saved by a liberal use of bark, snake-root and wine...the celebrated Dr Goldsmith was destroyed by an injudicious use of James's Powder ;and notwithstanding James's assertation, that it has been found beneficial in the malignant yellow fevers of hot climates ,the reverse isundoubtedly true
I'm so glad Jane survived......
