. . . das sind jene freiwilligen Candidaten der Medizin, die sich in
die ganze Krankheitslehre hinein lesen, die sich aus Büchern Recepte
verschreiben; zu deren Einem Marcus Herz, der berühmt gewordene Feind

an einem Druckfehler sterben!

. . . these are those voluntary candidates of medicine, who read
themselves into the whole doctrine of disease, who prescribe
themselves recipes from books; to one of whom Marcus Herz, the famous
enemy of all fraud, once said: Dear friend! You will die once again
from a printing error!
