Continuation of the discussion of Snow's 13 February presentation at the Westminster Medical Society. Just prior to adjournment of the discussion, "Dr. Snow said, that since he read his paper at the previous meeting, he had completed some experiments, by which he had ascertained that the vapour of ether was given out again from the lungs unchanged, and that the amount of carbonic acid gas produced during the inhalation of ether was less than at other times: these circumstances he considered confirmed the explanation of the modus operandi of ether which he had previously given" [228].
