AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Believing it incumbent upon himself to 'own a theory', as this is the fashion of the day, the narrator settles upon a theory of 'Gastric Juice'. He proposes that the key to success or failure, greatness or obscurity, resides in whether or not a person's gastric juices are in a healthy state.
