These Pastilles are the most convenient form of applying the Sulphurous Acid fumigation. In all malignant and infectious fevers, etc., one burned several times daily in the sick-chamber is most soothing to the patient, and goes far at once to mitigate the fever and save attendants from attack. Their advantages in warding off cattle epidemics, and disinfecting body linen and bedclothes are well known. Many ladies use them regularly for sweetening bedrooms, and destroying bad smells in apartments. One burned in the larder every night will cause meat, fish, game, etc., to keep much longer fresh in sultry weather, without the slightest injury to quality or flavour.
Extract from the "Chemist and Druggist," 15th September 1868:—"We tried Messrs. Bailey and Son's Pastilles. These burn with remarkable steadiness, without any spluttering, and are evidently very carefully made. They thus offer an excellent means for testing the value of the Sulphur treatment in cases for which it has been so energetically recommended by Dr. Dewar and others."
