Q. Colton, who had advertised his own revival of nitrous-oxide anesthesia. With Haskell’s slogan (upper right), “Ether administered when desired,” he afforded an alternate anesthetic for those not happy to receive laughing gas. “Pupblic” patients (lower right) could only pray that Dr. Haskell could administer anesthetics better than he could spell or proofread….
