" Fred, I am in a terrible trouble. I have only just discovered that my laudanum has come to an end. I know, however, that there are six chemists at Coire ; and if you and I pretend, separately, to be physicians, and each chemist consents to give to each of us the maximum of opium he may by Swiss law, which is very strict, give to one person, I shall just have enough to get through the night. Afterwards we must go through the same thing at Basle. If we fail — Heaven help me !"--Wilkie Collins[1] cited in The Bancrofts: Recollections of Sixty Years by Effie Bancroft and Squire Bancroft
