Ethnography, Medical Practitioners, Medical Treatment

    The writer reports: 'There are about fifty druggists' shops in the city, but no physician; the practitioners are all ignorant of the science, and when any medical professor comes along with the merchants from Pashawer or other places, he is held in very high estimation' (104). Some details of medical treatment are given, and the conduct of medical practitioners is described.
