After briefly touching on the introduction of medicine in different
cultures, the writer criticises the quackery prevalent in modern London, and
regrets the passing of the punishments that were formerly directed at such
'empiricism' in England. The writer concludes by advising that the treatment of
diseases should be committed to 'the only proper hands, the intelligent and
experienced practitioner' (334).
