A Letter to T. L. Bradford

When T. L. Bradford was compiling his Homoeopathic Bibliography, he obviously wrote to Swan asking about his work, thinking to include it in the "pharmacy" section of the book. The reply from Swan is in Bradford's Scrapbooks at the Hahnemann Collection in Philadelphia, PA.

Nov. 21, 1889
Dear Doctor,
In answer to your kind enquiry, I am glad to correct a mis- apprehension on your part.
I do not keep a pharmacy. If I let the professionals and the people have my high potencies it is as a privilege, but I do not business as an apothecary.
B. Fincke
