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.
