coffee, very strong, with a raw egg broken into it.—Letter 20, 1882 (To friends).

Grape Juice and Eggs—I have received light that you are injuring your body by a poverty-stricken diet.... It is the lack of suitable food that has caused you to suffer so keenly. You have not taken the food essential to nourish your frail physical strength. You must not deny yourself of good, wholesome food.… Get eggs of healthy fowls. Use these eggs cooked or raw. Drop them uncooked into the best unfermented wine you can find. This will supply that which is necessary to your system.... Eggs contain properties which are remedial agencies in counteracting poisons.—Counsels on Diet and Foods, 203, 204 (To Dr. D. H. Kress, 1901).

Approval of Progressive Medical Procedures

Blood Transfusions—There is one thing that has saved life—an infusion of blood from one person to another; but this would be difficult and perhaps impossible for you to do. I merely suggest it.—Medical Ministry, 286, 287 (To Dr. D. H. Kress).

Vaccination—[Vaccination for Smallpox: D. E. Robinson, one of Mrs. White's secretaries, under date of June 12, 1931, wrote as follows concerning Mrs. White's attitude toward vaccination:

“You ask for definite and concise information regarding what Sister White wrote about vaccination and serum.

“This question can be answered very briefly for so far as we have any record, she did not refer to them in any of her writings.

“You will be interested to know, however, that at a time when there was an epidemic of smallpox in the vicinity, she herself was vaccinated and urged her helpers, those connected with her, to be vaccinated. In taking this step Sister White recognized the fact that it has been proven that vaccination either renders one immune from smallpox or greatly lightens its effects if one does come down with it. She also recognized the danger of their exposing others if they failed to take this precaution. “[Signed] D. E. Robinson.”]

X-ray Treatment at Loma Linda—For several weeks I took treatment with the X-ray for the black spot that was on my forehead. In all I took twenty-three treatments, and these succeeded in entirely removing the mark. For this I am very grateful.—Letter 30, 1911 (To her son J. E. White).
