Responds to an article in The Times reporting that Andrew Smith has sent the troops in the Crimea a consignment of Joseph Dalby's 'Carminative'— a 'jocose' remedy for dysentery. Ridicules this action, recommending that if Dalby's 'Carminative' should fail, then Smith ought to send the troops such quack remedies as 'Daffy's Elixir' or 'Hards' Farinaceous Food'.
