Skippack, Pa., Nov. 29, 1905.
To the Editor:
—In the light of and with the knowledge daily brought before us of "high financiering" as exemplified in the old-line life insurance companies of New York, with more to come, it would seem that any physician who makes an examination for a fee of three dollars or less is, to say the least, "easy." Some men have refused to examine an applicant for such a fee, only to be sarcastically informed by the agent that there were "others," not only waiting but anxious. Unfortunately he was telling the truth. We are cheap. Medical societies should take this matter up.
