|Title||Unpublished paper, 'An attempt to apply chemical principles in explanation of the action of poisons' by W H [William Henry] Broadbent|
|Description||Broadbent states two main postulates: firstly, that there must be some relation between the substance administered and the animal organism, on which the effects depend, secondly, that, so far as the substance is concerned, the basis of the relation can only be its chemical properties, using the term in its widest sense. Marked on front as 'Archives Dec 1868'. Annotations in ink throughout.|
