Excerpt from The Diagsis and Treatment of Digestive Diseases a Practical Treatise for Students: And Practitioners of Medicine In the making of this work, I have in many instances departed from the beaten track, voicing conclusions and consequent therapeutic procedures at variance with those laid down in some accepted text-books. These conclusions have been reached by years of study and observation; the therapy has been proved to my satisfaction, and can be proved to the satisfaction of others who will honestly investigate. I wish to express my appreciation and thanks to the following named gentlemen for various courtesies extended to me in the preparation of this volume; Dr. Max Einhorn, Dr. George Roe Lockwood, Dr. Robert Coleman Kemp, Dr. Anthony Bassler, Dr. C. D. Aaron, Dr. A. B. Jamison, Dr. J. D. Albright, and Dr. J. W. Weinstein. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
