Excerpt from An Anatomic and Mechanistic, Conception of Disease
The subject which has been announced for this, the twenty-sixth lecture given under the conditions of the bequest made by Dr. Shattuck, was chosen after much consideration as being of broad general interest and as having to do with the fundamentals of medical knowledge. It seemed possible that such a consideration might be of sufficient importance to be worthy of the occasion, and if it be so considered it will be a satisfaction to me, as being a slight return for the honor which you have conferred upon me in selecting me as your speaker.
The basis of that which is here presented is work which has been carried on for a number of years in the attempt to find the cause of the chronic disease conditions for which the orthopedist is consulted. A fairly exhaustive pathologic investigation failing to show more than the nature of the lesion, with similar experience from the bacteriologic and the biochemical investigations, led to the study of the fundamental anatomic conditions existing in patients afflicted with these diseases, with results which have been increasingly more suggestive the farther the study has been carried.
