Searching old records and wondering what does "Vapours" mean? Well, it's an obsolete term directed at women for a variety of mental health conditions (or not). A similar term that was also used for women was "Hysteria". These would encompass pretty much anything you could think of such as depression, nervousness, irritability, insomnia, loss of sexual desire or appetite, or it could be simply that she was not cooperating with what her husband demanded, and he held all the power. Hence referred to in some medical reports as "a tendency to cause trouble". Many were institutionalized and various practices were used to "cure" it, from massage to lobotomy. The electronic belt above I'd have to say falls somewhere in the middle.
