Excerpt from Surgery, Past Present and Future: And Excessive Mortality After Surgical Operations; Two Addresses to the British Medical Association; 1864& 1877

Mr. President and Gentlemen -

When I received from the President of the Council of this great Association the unanimous request of the Committee of Council that I would deliver this Address, and was further assured that I was thus invited at the suggestion of a deputation from Manchester, I felt that any hesitation on my part might appear ungrateful, or as if I did not appreciate a great honour. So, without wasting your time by apologies, and simply thanking you for the exceeding kindness of your greetsing to-day, I will ask you to consider with me how, as an Association, how in each of our branches, how, individually as well as collectively, every one of us may assist in the advancement of the

Surgery of the Future;

how the art and science of the present, which we have received from our forefathers and our teachers, and as far as we could have improved, may be so handed down that our followers, taught by our success, warned by our failures, knowing where our knowledge is defective, our methods faulty, may so work and so observe that in each succeeding year surgery may become more perfect as an art, more exact as a science, and more honourable as a profession.
