I am requested by our Chairman to formulate the theories and conclusions on the modern treatment of tuberculosis. The object is to bring out your thoughts and excite discussion, and I trust I shall not fail in this purpose. As there are no two cases of tuberculosis in a thousand alike in all their various phases, so I might almost say there are no two physicians who will treat these manifestations in the same way, even if they are all recognized, which is a question. Our mental appreciation of this most important of the diseases which afflict the human race is in a formative state. I fancy one would only have to announce a set plan of management, which he would carry out as suitable to the great majority of his own patients, and the desired controversy would at once be set in motion in opposition thereto.
