Flint, Mich., Jan. 23, 1904.
To the Editor:
—I received this morning a letter, of which the following is a copy:Chicago, Jan. 22, 1904.
Dr. C. B. Burr, Flint, Mich.
—Your name has been handed us with a few other thoroughly reliable physicians in the United States, and referred to as well known throughout your part of country, and for this reason we are making you the following splendid proposition:We are now ready to furnish to the medical profession a new electric medical bath machine on which we secured patents Sept. 30, 1903. This new therapeutic (sic) instrument is admitted by medical experts to be the best physician's medical battery ever put on the market. It was invented by an electric genius, and is no doubt considered the most perfect instrument of its kind ever placed on the market, and we guarantee it in every respect.
