(10 November 1838)

Topics: pericarditis (W. Pettigrew); ossification of aortic valves in young patients (Williams, Golding Bird); rheumatism (J. Johnson, Williams, and Snow).

"Mr. Snow had observed that the pain in cases of rheumatism was relieved, as if by magic, under the use of colchicum; the sudden relief he considered rather desirable than dangerous" (307).
