The Sources and Further Information are perhaps as awesome as the content of the main body of the letter. I assure you that your time will be well spent reading this exposé, parts extracted here as an entrée:

Dr Good encouraged him to examine the cancer treatment developed by a maverick dentist, Donald Kelley. Having cured himself of pancreatic cancer, just about the deadliest one there is, Kelley developed a protocol based on the earlier work by Dr Max Gerson and the discovery made in the early 1900s by John Beard of Edinburgh University about the central importance of pancreatic enzymes for cancer prevention and treatment...
Best wishes to all of us, thinking of this while we may overindulge during the festive season.
