God Disposes and Man Proposes


So Dr. Mynter Said, He Would Not Predict, but Anticipated Recovery.

     Milburn House, Buffalo, Sept. 10.—Dr. Herman Mynter, one of the consulting physicians of President McKinley, said last night:
     “I have always made it a point not to prognosticate in serious cases, for you know man proposes and God disposes. I consider the president’s case a serious one and so I do not predict, but I may say that at this stage of the occurrence the condition of the patient is quite remarkably favcorable [sic] and personally I cannot anything [sic] but recovery.”
     Dr. Eugene Wasdin, who was with Dr. Mynter, said:
     “I, too, am averse to making predictions, but I agree that the president’s condition is one that strongly favors complete and rapid recovery.”
