The Blessings of Chloroform
Anaesthesia, Medical Treatment, Surgery
Praises the widespread social benefits of chloroform. For example, observes that chloroform 'will render quite agreeable the parting with / Any useless member that a patient has been smarting with', lull 'with its magic power' both 'Scolding wife and squalling infant', and that it should be sniffed when 'plagued with any kind of bore'.
