The author's aim is to preserve that which his own experience, and of the highest authorities, has proven to be most worthy of confidence. Many useful things, both medical and surgical, appear in this volume, which will prove a lasting benefit to all concerned. We commend it highly.

We wish to say to

our friends that it will prove interesting reading for them in their leisure moments.
