[To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR]

Snt,—In view of the vast amount of money and trouble at present being devoted to cancer research it would, I think, be a good plan if the possibilities of Abram's treatment were tested by a fair and thorough experiment. I know from per- sonal experience and observation that this very original medical theory and treatment, when in competent hands, produces phenomena, the scientific existence and value of which can- not be disputed by any open-minded individual. How great the value of the treatment may be, either for prevention or cure, we may as yet have incomplete evidence, but there is at least an indication that it may be very great indeed, and as it is absolutely safe and painless, there is no reason why thorough tests should not be made. I am aware that many leading members of the medical profession ridicule Abram's theory, but if the account I read of a " test " applied some years ago be accurate, I can only say that the degree of fairness displayed by those conducting it was on a par with what one expects from a Commission of orthodox financiers examining proposals for monetary reform !—Yours very truly,
