Ethnography, Medical Practitioners, Medical Treatment
The writer reports: 'There are about fifty druggists' shops in the city, but no physician; the practitioners are all ignorant of the science, and when any medical professor comes along with the merchants from Pashawer or other places, he is held in very high estimation' (104).
