Hoolihan 581: Having purchased a 'right' to Thomson's system, Chambers justifies the publication of an additional and seemingly extra-legal text on the botanic practice in his preface: 'I have owned a right to this incomparable system of medicine about seven years; and, by attention and application thereto, have obtained so competent a knowledge of it, that I confidently believe that no one will be disappointed, or ever regret purchasing this book... But there are many individuals and families who are yet unsupplied with any book of directions for using these medicines, and for the proper management of the sick.
