16 September 1857
To the Editor of the Pilot
Sir, - When a new "Doctor" takes up his residence amongst us, apparently without or perhaps Colonial Diploma, should not the medical men of the city call the attention of the Chief Magistrate to the fact?
Failing redress in that quarter, let them find out á caise where some poor unfortunate being has perhaps been made miserable for life by swallowing some horrible mixture destructive to both stomach and bowels, and thereon take legal proceedings.
I am, Sir, our obedient servant, CIVIS
