He studied and knew the development of any new theory. [And from his own pocket he would distribute the devices to his patients himself.] He was by far the first doctor in the town to even think of such. And he would give and explain and give and tell them. [And then deliver maybe two score times a week.]

Score = 2-, so it's 40 times a week.
