since I was eight years old I've wanted to become a doctor to put an end to smallpox
a few days later...
Nothing serious. Just cowpox.
cowpox! excellent. now i won't get smallpox! and my skin will be wonderfully smooth
doctor I've caught a horrible rash whilst milking a cow! what is it?
how many maids have had cowpox but not smallpox?
All of us. We end up with lovely soft skin too!
THERE REALLY IS A CURE!!
All I'm going to do is give you the puss from this milkmaid's cowpox then later give you smallpox. Hopefully I'm right and you survive
And so he informed the royal society of his dicovery but because he couldn't explain how it worked, the turned him down. he payed for it to be printed else where and it was published. people were avoiding small pox and eventually, it died out.
I feel fine!!
I'm a genius! I need the world to know about this
