Excerpt from The Horace Dobell Lectures on Insect Porters of Bacterial Infection: Delivered at the Royal College of Physicians of London, November, 1912
To successfully interfere in bacterial diseases of man and animals it is most important to know accurately the life history... of the parasite outside the host - how it leaves the old host, how it enters a new host, and where and how it passes the intervening period. If we are in possession of these facts our efforts in the struggle can at any rate be intelligently directed and concentrated against the most vulnerable point of the enemy. The exercise of an adverse in¿uence upon bacteria, once they have gained a footing in the body, has hitherto not been generally successful, although recent developments in chemotherapy have shown that there is ground for Optimism in this direction also.
