Two statements made by J. T. Kent regarding Gentry's Concordance Repertory—that not over 40 per cent of the materia medica is included and 50 per cent of Gentry's symptoms cannot be found in any materia medica—are scrutinized as to their veracity. The study brought to light that Kent's assertions are untenable and it is supposed that he made them to promote the sale of his own repertory which was by no means a bestseller during his lifetime.
