There, now, provided that you've got sufficient quantity of water the pressure will build up, which will eventually, with the crystals, become, as he says, uncontrollable!

    Denis Nayland-Smith: But these crystals of which he writes, what would they be composed of?

    Dr. Petrie: Possibly a derivative of opium.
