On March 24, 1843, Hahnemann fell ill with bronchitis, gradually loosing his strength.
He as usual prescribed for himself and when he became too weak to do this recommended the remedies that his wife and Dr. Chatran should use.
Patiently he suffered the severe paroxysms of difficult breathing peculiar to his disease.
This last attack set in with serious bilious diarrhoea, succeeded by an intermittent fever that exhausted him very much.
The end came early in the morning, 5 a.m. of Sunday, July 2, 1843 after an illness of six weeks.
