To the Editor:
In the article, "The Medical Sects," The Journal, July 9, 1910, p. 146, occurs the following passage: "Allopathy was just as sectarian as homeopathy. Indeed homeopathy was the inevitable retort to allopathy." Here is given a false impression—indeed, a misstatement of the facts. Both terms were the invention of Hahnemann; with him began the "pathies" and it is certainly time that scientific medicine put an end to them.
