the quill may be taken in hand, within two inches of the rod, and held to the part intended.
THE electric shocks are an effectual and sudden cure for the quinsy.
Bring on the shocks a little above the affected part, and pass them down to the lower extremities.
If it is done in the first stages, they will break it immediately, by the dilation of the shocks, striking into the suppurated matter.
I have used the shocks frequently on the quinsy, and have ever found gentle shocks to answer the purpose; and the shocks hardly ever need
repeating more than twice of three times: ten or fifteen are sufficient for one time. Let the part be covered.
Sore throat, inflammatory sore throat, canker, &c. in the throat and bowels, may all be assisted, and finally cured, by gentle electrifications through the part, and covered warmly.
VERTIGO, or swimming in the head, proceeds from a redundancy of blood, caused by the over-action of the ascendens aorta.
