From E. A. Darwin 7 May 1
Sir H send’s thanks for Zoo:2 which he has returned. I told him you had been trying Podophyll:3 & he said he had just had a patient come to him suffering from taking it & that as far as he knew it was nothing but a strong drastic, & if taken with that view he should think not good for you. I dont think I experienced any other effect from it myself
yours aff. | E D
Henry Holland sends thanks for Zoonomia.
Sir Henry would not expect podophyllin to be good for CD.
