Excerpt from Opium-Smoking in America and China: A Study of Its Prevalence, and Effects, Immediate and Remote, on the Individual and the Nation

In my work, "Drugs That Enslave," which is devoted to a study of the opium, morphine, chloral, and hashisch habits, I say, at p. 29, that opium-smoking is confined entirely to the inhabitants of Eastern countries, and that, consequently, a study of the subject can in no way interest us. This statement, in the light of my present knowledge, is wholly false, as also is an accompanying clause in which I say that a full description of the practice may be found in books of travel. The descriptions there found are either very meagre, and consequently worthless, or positively untruthful.
