About this work


A single-sheet fragment (numbered pages 5 and 6). Detailed suggestions about design and materials. "These cases & the books I have mentioned would I believe be the means of introducing our goods more acceptably[,] rapidly & profitably to the medical profession & public, and at the same time with less expense to ourselves than any other means. Every chemist would be willing to keep one of each sort of case on his counter together with copies of the books for sale. Such a case in [the] hands of each doctor & chemist ... would spread our goods over the world in a hurry greatly to our credit & profit."
