June 28: MORPHINE CHOLERA PRESCRIPTION -- We yesterday copied from an exchange paper an extract of a letter from a Louisiana planter, who is also an eminent physician, recommending as a preparatory preventive of the cholera, a dose of five to ten or twelve grains of calomel, with ten or fifteen grains of morphine at night. Our attention has been called to the fact that this dose of morphine should be the tenth or fifteenth part of a grain. Newspaper prescriptions may be good but a typographical error like the above, if followed, would be more certainly fatal than the cholera itself.
