Want Of Water

One of the obstacles is the _want of a sufficient quantity of water_ in

some houses, and the difficulty of procuring it.



This obstacle is easily removed.



If you cannot procure water enough for a half-bath--for there cannot be

a difficulty in procuring a pailful for wetting the sheet--give your

patient a _dripping sheet_ instead, which, in most cases, will do as

well; or, should there be a want of a wash-tub to give it in, a _rubbing

sheet_ may supply the bath.
