heated .?enunciation of the commercial

surgeons, but is it possible that I ?aid
''ali men are criminals." as your rendition
of my letter seems to say? Of course,
ejulte the reverse la my opinion of men,
and many of them physicians and sur?
geons, too; wnat I could mean is that a
very large percentage of crimin?is are
men, as is conceded by all Ins SsttgStOTS
