I’m struck by a class thing. I get some sense the bullshit physicians note was pretty common among the affluent class. Doesn’t say much for them, but doesn’t say much for the physicians of the time, that they could be plied so frequently to abet draft avoidance if their client had enough status. We don’t really remember our Dr. Kildares and Marcus Welbys for all the fake infirmity diagnoses they were writing.
