In order to provide a little amusement for our readers we frequently publish quotations from the lay press on medical matters. Were it not that the subject has a serious side we would be inclined to quote liberally from the official attempt of the government to enlighten its citizens on the “Friedmann Treatment for Tuberculosis,” a document submitted by the Secretary of State to the President and transmitted by the latter to the Senate, by which it was published as Senate Document No. 1018. With the exception of a less than two-page introduction by the consul-general at Berlin, this document consists entirely of a translation of Dr. Friedmann's Berlin address and the discussions on it as they appeared some time ago in the Berliner klinische Wochenschrift.1 The technical language of this translation can be compared only to that sometimes seen in the unedited letters of “voodoo” and similar “doctors.”
