No. Ii till Doc tors recognizing tim halt a Century ago one who had my physical troubles did not Long survive them How can i worry about the tact j that doctors like the rest of us j charge tor their services when i have quarrelled with them it has not been a tout the Bills. Consider j int that i am alive and Able to i do my work every Day As thousands cd others Are who have heart ailments i am sure that ail undertaker would have charged More with less satisfactory results. I write this because i have been Reading a general condemnation of doctors As a class. That is about As sensible As condemning lawyers clergymen teachers businessmen or labor leaders As a class. Even in my own profession there Are persons who Are not a perfect. Of course there Are bad apples among them just As Lucifer was once an Angel. But ii we Are to generalize without prejudice the medical profession on the whole has done More for humanity on a smaller return than any other professional group.

The Man who came was Young engaging obvious in starting life. He charged me a few dollars he became our family doctor. The years pass and this doctor decides that he wants to work in an experimental Field Fie takes a year off. Actually depriving himself and his family of income.
