Excerpt from History of American Medical Literature: From 1776 to the Present Time

The matter comprised in the following pages was read as an Introductory Address to the Fifty-first Course of Lectures in the Jefferson Medical College, October 4th, 1875, and published at the request of the Class. It is now issued in a separate form for distribution among my professional brethren, and such persons as may feel a desire to peruse it. The composition cost me much labor, but it was a labor of love, designed to show our people how much earnest work we have done during the century now about to close of our existence as an independent power in the interests of medical science, and in upholding the national honor. Like Rousseau's Ode to Posterity, the booklet may never reach its destination; but if it should be so fortunate, it may, perchance, serve as a connecting link between the glorious Past and what a hundred years hence will undoubtedly be a grand and brilliant Present.
