Among the useful data in this visiting-list are: periods of dentition, weights and measures, comparative scales, examination of the urine, important incompatibles, poisons and antidotes, table of doses and therapeutic reminders. The best hint given, however, is in the first line: "Keep your visiting-list in such a way that you can fully explain it." This sentence alone is worth the price of the book, because physicians are sometimes haled into court because of a dispute about the bill for services rendered. and at such a time an "explainable" visiting-list has often been the means of securing a decision in the doctor's favor. This book is of convenient size, well bound in red leather, and printed on good strong paper. Provision is made for keeping a record of visits, vaccinations, confinements, addresses and a cash account.
