How unexpectedly circumstances will occur. Last summer, on a pleasant Sunday morning as I was passing a house, the lady sitting in the porch stopped me and began to undervalue all doctors and medicine at the lowest rate. I listened, and carried on the joke for some time. During my stay I observed some symptoms of disease affecting the old lady and told her she would have to employ a doctor before long, and today I have to visit her.
