 +{{anchor:​s2}}BY E. W.BERRIDGE, M.D., LONDON.
 +{{anchor:​s3}}My address at Milwaukee has had at least //one// good result; it has compelled the mongrels to exhibit themselves in their true colors and display their irreconcilable hatred for the homoeopathy of Hahnemann. {{anchor:​s4}}Their denunciations and misrepresentations of myself, I treat with the silent contempt they deserve; I shall only deny the falsehood they have circulated about two of my friends. {{anchor:​s5}}It has been publicly asserted that I prepared and read my address, at Milwaukee, at the instigation of Drs. Ad. Lippe and T. P. Wilson. {{anchor:​s6}}This assertion, I pronounce a //​deliberate and malicious fabrication.//​
 +{{anchor:​s7}}The only individual on either side of the “pond” who knew of the contents of my address was Dr. H. N. Guernsey, of Philadelphia. {{anchor:​s8}}When Dr. T. P. Wilson heard of my intended visit, he wrote me a letter of welcome, telling me that I must be prepared to address the Institute; //but made no other suggestions.//​ {{anchor:​s9}}Shortly afterward, Dr. H. N. Guernsey visited me, I read him the letter of Dr. Wilson, and asked what kind of address would be expected; whether a theoretical essay, some clinical cases, or what? {{anchor:​s10}}He suggested a paper inculcating the study of Hahnemann’s “Organon.{{anchor:​s11}}” I coincided with his views and wrote my paper. {{anchor:​s12}}When I saw Dr. Guernsey, again, at my house, I read it to him. {{anchor:​s13}}He made no further suggestions,​ but thoroughly approved of it, saying that he would vote for the printing of one thousand copies for distribution;​ but his absence from the meeting prevented him from carrying out his intention. {{anchor:​s14}}The address was, with a few merely verbal alterations,​ precisely the same as read to Dr. Guernsey; for its sentiments //I alone// am responsible.
 +{{anchor:​s15}}Dr. T. P. Wilson knew so little of it beforehand, that, when asked about it as president, he was unable to give even the title. {{anchor:​s16}}While staying in Philadelphia,​ as Dr. Ad. Lippe’s guest, I intended to read the address to him and obtain his opinion and advice; but day after day passed by without a convenient opportunity arising; so (fortunately,​ as it happened), I did not read it to him.
 +{{anchor:​s17}}From the above refutation of //one// of the falsehoods circulated by the mongrels, Homoeopathicians will be able to form an estimate of their candor in other matters. //​{{anchor:​s18}}Ex uno disce omnes.//
