  surance"-nothing more need be said. I should think there can be no difference                 Foster, Chester-le-Street; Dr. Roberts, Manchester; Mr. George Callender,
  of opinion with regard to them. With the third head, however, the case is dif-               London; Mr. H. Greenway, Plymouth; Dr. Lockhart Robertson, Hayward's

  particulars as to past or present ailments, hereditary predisposition, habits of living,     Dr. Maddox, Southampton; Dr. Bence Jones, London; Dr. Moore, DubliNr; Dr.

  as well as those under number 2 should not be answered; and the reason for this              Partridge, Birmingham; Mr. J. B. Pitt, Norfolk; Mr. Hcrbert Morgan, Lichfield;
  opinion is, that to answer them would be a breach of confidence. It is evident               and Dr. Sammut, Naples.
  that it is no breach of confidence for the medical attendant to reveal that which the
  proposer knows and wishes him to reveal. The only question is, as to whether the            LETTERS, ETC. (with enclosures) from:-

 willing to take you on such and such terms." The proposer, being an honest and                Augustin Prichard, Clifton, Bristol; Dr. Horace Jeaffreson, Wandsworth; The

 is the coimipany's interest to kniow, and with this view not only submits to an exa-          Secretary of Apothecaries' Hall; Dr. John Mlurray, London; Dr. Lomas, London;
