Sir,—l dare say raoßt of your readers are aware that the doctors of New Zealand are trying to get a measure passed in Parliament that will simply rob us of a part of our liberty. They want to make it a criminal offence on the part of anyone but a regular or legally qualified person to visit the sick for the purpose of prescribing for them or giving them advice. If they carry their point, then it will not be safe for a friend to visit a sick relative, lest he should be tempted to recommend him to take any medicine he thinkß will do him good. Our people have thia liberty now, and some of the more liberal doctors hero do not want any more protection than they have at present, which is quite enough,—l am, etc., J. Neil. Dunedin, July 19.
