Sixty-eight of the ninety-three pages of this monograph are devoted to a report on the diagnosis and treatment of ocular tuberculosis by tuberculin, and the balance to an impassioned plea for its use in pulmonary tuberculosis. "Nothing can take the place of tuberculin in the early diagnosis of phthisis. It can definitely exclude phthisis as nothing else can, which is a transcendent advantage, but it can also, with other methods, definitely discover that tubercle bacilli are working mischief in the tissues long before any other method can do so. Moreover, as the transcendental remedy for the treatment of early phthisis, it leaves little to be desired...." The author refers to previous reports of his which purport to prove his contention and states that he has a mass of additional evidence but does not present any of it. He pleads for the establishment of about two hundred "Tuberculin Clinics" in London
