Not illustrated. 1881 Excerpt: ...take with their dinner, a small glassful of good claret. The specifications are about the most important of the nourishing diet. Besides a careful feeding of scrofulous children, there are the following prescriptions, which necessarily have to be obeyed, to obtain a cure. Children who are really afflicted by scrofulas, or if they are only threatened by them, should stay only in spacious, well aired, to the sun accessible dry rooms. Their bed of mattresses, must not be surrounded by curtains, and it is most imperative, that they sleep alone. Motion in the fresh, free air is necessary, and nothing is worse for them, than to sit for hours in the musty schoolrooms. If circumstances will permit it, then a change of place of living in our northerly climate would be" advisable; children of au irritated, lively temperament, might be taken to a mild, southerly air, phlegmatic into the mountains or the sea coast. If circumstances will not allow this, then be careful, that the child is not exposed to a wet cold weather. Tender children dare only be left to go out on sunny days, whilst constitutions of a bloated and coarser kind, can stand a rougher, if it is dry air, somewhat better. But at all evencs, more or less motion is necessary, certainly with avoidance of overheating, as scrofulous children, have principally to be protected against catching cold, as every little cough can be dangerous to them. Next to fresh air, are washing or better still, baths in water not too warm, to strengthen weak constitutions. You begin with water, of about 24 degrees R. and reduce it gradually to 20 degrees; while washing, you have to pass always over separate parts of the body only with a wet sponge, dry them well every time with flannel or coarse drilling, rubbing them quickly...
