The epidemic's intensification and the difficulties in treating cholera compelled the Russian medical community to send a letter to Dr. Hahnemann. The letter contained a detailed description of the symptoms of the disease, as well as a request to indicate appropriate remedies. In 1830 statistics on cholera treatment by allopathic remedies were published the by Foreign Ministry (63 percent mortality) and by homeopathic treatment (11 percent mortality).
