Vermillion, S. D., Nov. 25, 1901.
To the Editor:
—The subject of "Prescription Writing," taken up by The Journal, is undoubtedly a timely one and I would suggest that the series of articles be reprinted and published in pamphlet form so they may be more convenient for reference.For my part, I was fortunate enough to have some knowledge of Latin before studying medicine, but I find that things will easily slip the memory and I would take great pleasure in getting these timely articles in such a form that they could have a place on my desk.No one who has ever looked over the prescriptions filed in the drugstores will doubt the necessity of a more thorough knowledge of prescription writing, as many of the prescriptions are a sight to behold!With thanks to The Journal for its many and helpful hints, I am, yours fraternally,
