The question has been raised, whether in typhoid cases, and in cases of

torpid reaction in general, water is at all applicable? I can answer the

question only in the affirmative; but I must add, that the treatment of

such cases requires more than confidence and courage: it requires a nice

discrimination to know the exact moment, when water may be applied, what

should be its temperature, how long the bath should last, what kind of

baths should be given, whether the pack will be of service, &c.
