Philada 8 mo. 26. 1891My Dear WifeI rec’d thy letter at breakfast this morning & was sorry to hear of Carries sore throat. I am glad however that she has fallen into the hands of so sensible a doctor as to permit her to go on using her homeopathic remedies. It is somewhat like the Catholic missionaries in China letting the natives go on worshipping their old idols, only calling them saints. It is a good sign however of the growing charity of the world. Religious sects are showing it & if the doctors are following their example there will be nobody left to fight but the lawyers & the millennium will soon be here. I think the doctors remedies are doing the work he expected of them
