If the injury be not very severe, bathing with cold water, hot drops, or wormwood moistened with spirits, and taking a teaspoonful of composition, is all that is required. But if very severe, the vapor bath should be immediately administered, with a free use of composition, which is far preferable to bleeding. If the patient is injured so as to be insensible, put down the throat or give by injection a great spoonful of antispasmodic tincture, which will restore sensibility. In some cases, a thorough course of medicine ought to be administered.
