point where, in a happy syncretism of both sciences, I could be easily followed by practitioners of either. Conscious at the outset how inevitably this must happen, I have at least endeavored to reduce the number of its occurrences to the fewest possible; and for this purpose have often compressed the discussion of important legal principles within limits stripping them of all argumentative development, and substituting for it such bald terms as might seem to savor of dogmatism. But the nature of the undertaking left me no other course to pursue, since what has been said in reference to legal principles will also apply with equal force to medical subjects.

In avoiding, therefore, any amplification of topics in directions where possibly a wider argument might have been justifiable, I have sought to combine precision with brevity, by generally selecting the analytical form of syllogism, and supporting conclusions of law by the reasons on which they synthetically rest. Much verbiage is thus escaped, and the subject divested of all necessity for circumlocution, by presenting it in its baldest and most striking outlines. And as I have always conceived this to be the best form in which the essence of a legal princi ple can be stated, I have accordingly pre-ordinated it to the inferior claims of external expression, leaving these to be met and answered by readers who will naturally supply the omitted steps for themselves.

ROSLYN, N. Y., June, 1869.
