Letter to the Board of Heath suggesting brandy to be useful in the treatment of cholera, 23 July 1832, Catalogue ref: HO 44/25.
The great utility [value] , and good effects of Brandy in cases of Cholera, and its high price rendering it unattainable by the lower orders of His Majesty’s subjects. I beg to suggest to your Lordships, the propriety of appointing places in different parts of London, under certain Rules and Regulations which your Lordships Wisdom may suggest, for the Sale of Pure Brandy, free of Duty, until the Cholera shall have ceased. I am,
Very Humble Servant,
To Lord Melbourne.
