The Transition from Live to Dead: the Nature of Filtrable Viruses1

Abstract

RUTHERFORD was an example of the danger JAi and folly of cultivating thoughts and reading books to which he was not equal. It is all very well that remarkable persons should occupy themselves with exalted subjects which are out of the ordinary road, but we who are not remarkable make a very great mistake if we have anything to do with them.—W. HALE WHITE, preface to the second edition of “The Autobiography of Mark Rutherford.”
