Pill-Making and Bill-Making



Essay, Drollery


Homeopathy, Commerce, Medical Practitioners, Health

    Pondering the possibility that homeopathic doctors are 'homeopathic in their fees', favours visiting a homeopath rather than an allopath during any future illness, and thus avoiding the 'wondrously long bills' run up by doctors. Discusses a recent legal case revealing the extortionate fees charged by a surgeon for mere attendance, but excluding the cost of pills. Concludes that this makes 'one instinctively determined to do all within one's power to keep oneself in health'.
