Excerpt from Domestic Medicine: A Treatise on the Practice of Medicine, Adapted to the Reformed System, Comprising a Materia Medica, With Numerous Illustrations
It has been supposed too that mischiefs would result from an attempt on the part of the people to prescribe for themselves. But they ever have prescribed more or less for themselves, and it must be supposed that they ever will do so; and it is difficult to see how a knowl edge to do ey, what will be done at all events, will give rise to mischief. Novelty is the food of fancy, and so long as any matter, the existence of which is known, remains in mystery, the human mind will never cease to pry into it. Let the mind once fully grasp a thing and its novelty is gone.
