Preface

The call for a new edition of my little treatise on Colds has enabled me to put it through a complete revision, and at the same time to add a section on that most unwelcome visitor of recent years EPIDEMIC INFLUENZA. The name Influenza has become indissolubly connected with colds in the head; and epidemic influenza has so many features in common with ordinary colds, that some account of the malady and how it may be cured, together with the large family of ills it leaves behind it, seems called for in the present volume.

1 I have heard many people say in reference to the scourge, which is now in the seventh year of its visitation, that it is ridiculous to call this Influenza: this is something a great deal worse! But as a matter of fact, the epidemic influenza is the originator of the name, severe colds having been called ‘‘ influenza colds ’’ after it.

For centuries the epidemic disease has prevailed in Western Europe at uncertain intervals, and for want of a more definite description the Italians named it ‘‘Influenza,’’ or ‘‘The Influence.’’ And as this name does not commit any one to special views as to the pathology of the disease, it is so far unobjectionable, and has become generally adopted.

My own theory as to the application of the name to severe ordinary colds is this: For some time after a visitation of an epidemic, infectious colds of a severe type have prevailed, and have been called ‘‘ Influenza Colds,’’ to distinguish them from common non-infectious colds. By degrees, for the sake of shortness, they have been called simply ‘‘Influenza.’’ Hence has arisen the confusion when the next epidemic has come round.

The name our French neighbours have given it is ‘‘ La Grippe.’’ which is sufficiently suggestive of the sudden manner in which it seizes its victims, and this term, in its Anglified form of ‘‘grip,’’ is the favourite name of the disease on the American Continent.
