Excerpt from On the Treatment of Syphilis

N ow suppose for an instant, bearing in mind the tableau which I have carefully sketched, a patient recently contami nated, suppose him on his own account looking the inter minable series of accidents of syphilis squarely in the face, and then ask him if there was any reason why he should not try by every means to prepare himself for such events, or whether he preferred to await results. What would be his answer? It would be that he would not under any circumstances think of such a thing as of standing the brunt of such a disease; that it would be foolhardiness not to endeavor to protect himself; and that he was firmly resolved to try every medicine and remedy, and every doctor, in order to be cured; in a word, that he wished to be treated, and he would be treated.

N ow, we physicians, who are more enlightened than this patient, as to the nature and consequences of syphilis, would we reason otherwise than he did if we were victims of the dis ease? Certainly not Simple common-sense, which is greater than all systems and all theories, says that, when a person has syphilis, he should get rid of it, and not allow it to remain in his system.
