The homoeopath has laws of cure by which, if he is familiar with them, he is armed for successful conflict. He goes to the bedside not cringing with doubt, but bravely and with confidence. He is grounded in principles which are in accord with God-given forces for good. He is equipped not with poisonous compounds as remedies, but with delicate pharmaceuticals, potentized drugs from which all save the curative elements have been eliminated.
