I cannot forbear mentioning a symptom of this Abies nigra, a symptom, too, that has been frequently confirmed. I refer to the application of the drug in dyspepsia when the patient complains of a feeling as though he had swallowed some indigestible substance which had stuck at the cardiac extremity of the stomach. That is the main symptom and the keynote of the drug. There are also present, the low spiritedness, the hypochondriasis, and the constipation incident to dyspepsia.
