First Trials of a Young Physician [2/2]
Elisabeth S Phelps
Short Fiction, Serial
Medical Practitioners, Medical Treatment, Vaccination
Dr Harris reflects on his poor record of attracting patients, but considers that his time has not been entirely wasted because he has used it to study several medical works (364). He visits a boy suffering from a disease and laments the fact that he was prevented from having a vaccination (365). Harris consults with other physicians about giving the boy treatment and his judgement is supported. Following the boy's recovery, Harris's reputation and practice steadily grow (366).
