Excerpt from The Crime of Vaccination A great discovery is universally acclaimed by this name at the moment of its birth. It is as an infant whose parents and their friends vociferously herald its advent and prophesy its greatness. The public is ever anxious to welcome any innovation when it has within it the infinite possibilities of the unknown coupled with the marvelous. Generally some element of truth is present as an excuse for its existence. Whether sufficient of this be present or not only time and the future can determine. It must run its circle to test its verity during the labor of proof. If it were not greeted with enthusiasm it would hardly be given a trial.
