    Complains of 'the persecution to which Dr. Theobald has been subjected by the Medical Council, his name having been removed from the Medical Register because he has dared to call attention to the fact that Count Mattei's remedies have really cured disease'. Also notes 'the triumphant assertions of some of the enemy that Professor Stokes has analysed the medicines and found them to contain nothing but water', but counters that 'the only test that is worth anything is physiological—do the remedies cure, or do they not? Medical analysis often fails to discover the healing elements in other medicines than those of Mattei'.
