Remarks on the History, Cause, and Mode of Transmission of Yellow Fever and the Occurrence of Similar Types of Fatal Fevers in Places Where Yellow Fever Is Not Known to Have Existed (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Remarks on the History, Cause, and Mode of Transmission of Yellow Fever and the Occurrence of Similar Types of Fatal Fevers in Places Where Yellow Fever Is Not Known to Have Existed I have quoted this at length because his classical descrip tion of the symptoms of the disease shows that he was a close and careful observer, and it is certainly interesting to learn that he regarded the bilious remitting fever as simply a milder form of yellow fever. Dr. Benjamin Rush adds in a foot note: There can be no doubt of the truth of this opinion from Dr. Huck, a physician whose talent for observation and discrimination were well known to the editor, (dr. Rush.) It would certainly seem then that bilious remittent fevers, epidemic in character and accompanied by jaundice, of short duration, occurring on vessels, in seaport towns and along the lines of travel from them, are closely related to, and probably identical with yellow fever.
