LETTER FROM SWITZERLAND.

LETTER FROM SWITZERLAND. Eschenz, Canton Thurgau, Switzerland, Aug. 12, 1897. To the Editor: —One phase—and by no means the least important—of the vexatious Oriental question is how best to meet the threatened invasion both of Europe and America by the allied forces of the two great Asiatic powers, Plague and Cholera. "All is fair in love and war," thought Solomon, when reflecting on his own origin, and espionage is an honest trade, provided one avoids being caught, for knowledge of the enemy's habitat and home life is of paramount value whether warring against pestiferous microbes, the Saracens or other powers of darkness; hence I have thought that a few brief sketches of the principal strongholds and recruiting camps of plague and cholera by a spy in the service of Hygeia might interest the readers of the Journal, who are fellow soldiers, serving with me in the same army, though detailed to other lines http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

Eschenz, Canton Thurgau, Switzerland, Aug. 12, 1897. To the Editor: —One phase—and by no means the least important—of the vexatious Oriental question is how best to meet the threatened invasion both of Europe and America by the allied forces of the two great Asiatic powers, Plague and Cholera. "All is fair in love and war," thought Solomon, when reflecting on his own origin, and espionage is an honest trade, provided one avoids being caught, for knowledge of the enemy's habitat and home life is of paramount value whether warring against pestiferous microbes, the Saracens or other powers of darkness; hence I have thought that a few brief sketches of the principal strongholds and recruiting camps of plague and cholera by a spy in the service of Hygeia might interest the readers of the Journal, who are fellow soldiers, serving with me in the same army, though detailed to other lines
