Dear Sir, --I have now attended upwards of 50 patients affected with Cholera Asphyxia, and in all I have found Diarrhoea to precede it from a few hours to eight or nine days. When called in during the stage of Diarrhoea, I have found it quite a manageable disease, with a few exceptions. Yours very truly, THOS. CUNNINGHAM, formerly Surgeon, R. N. To Dr. Kirk, Physician, Greenock. From Geo. WUlison, Licentiate of R. C. S. Surgeon, Edinburgh. Tranent, 13th Feb. 1832.
