_This is preaching rebellion!_

I know it is, and it is with great reluctance that I preach it, as I am

by no means in favor of taking medical matters out of the hands where

they belong, to place them into the hands of such as have had no medical

education. I despise quackery, and I wish physicians could be prevailed

upon to take the matter in their own hands. But, the following anecdote

will enable you to judge what we may expect in that quarter, and whether

I am justified in preaching rebellion against the old routine--for I

deny going against science and the profession--and for a new practice

which has proved to be safer than any hitherto adopted.
