Criticises the New
Rule of Doctor
Mr. Editor: I notice the doc
tors in Pickens have made a
pledge not to practice for th<
poor man without an orde:
from the landlord. It looks lik(
they have laid out a f6rtune foi
the doctors at Easley, Liberty
and Cateechee if they don't gt
in it. I hear a lot of men say
they will ao 40 miles before they
will go after one that signed
that pledge. I think you are
all too fast,. for the poor people
of Pickens county have made
you just what you are. Foi
I am pretty certain th-t some
of you came to Pickens with
o'it much money. Just look
what fine houses you have
built since, and fine horses and
buggies you -drive, Who paid
for. them? The poor man, for
the rich man, if he gets sick,
travels for his health. He
leaves no money with you tc
buy cigars and then grind the
poor man into dust and charge
double what you charge the
land owner. Mr. Editor, I
know of one of the doctors
charging a land owner, this
summer, $8.50 for one trip tc
see his wife, and in the same
community he went to see a
renter's wife for the some thing
nd charged him $13:00. Now
you se who k(
know they
them, but don't go bac
honest man. There are
honest poor men as theie are
land owners.
You know there are lot of men
with land in their possession
that if their debts were paid
wouldn't be worth anything,
and a lot have made their wives
free dealers. That wont work.
Here are the cotton mill people,
what are you going to do with
them? Here are men in town
in rented houses. You know
the man who.rented the house
to theni wo7h' -stani ood-for
their doctor bill. If I see it you
are going to loose what practice
you haye got. Let us hear
from others of the county.
Dont all write at once. The
poor you have with you always.
You have oppressed them.
Read.James 5th Chapter from
1 to 7thr verse. Read Mvatthew
25 chapter from 32 to 46. You
doctors read the Bible more and
study it and don't study so hard
to know how to charge the poor.
The Lord says in his Word that
he will take care of his. . Just
think I am one of his, so I wil]
ring off.
