This broadside addresses women smokers. The full text is a statement by Dr. Cummings, as follows: “If American Women generally contract this habit as reports now indicate they are doing, the entire nation will suffer. The physical tone of the whole nation will be lowered. The habit harms a woman more than it does a man. The reaction is, therefore, more intense.”.
