This is a very readable novelette, in which a well educated young German physician, while in Paris completing his studies, becomes acquainted with some wealthy Americans who induce him to settle in New York. They make his fortune and he cures them of nervous prostration by hypnotic suggestion. He marries a bright and well educated newspaper correspondent, and his charming clients build him a sanitarium and strive to outdo each other in making charitable largesses. This is an excellent study for your wealthy patients.
