The British and Foreign Medico-Chirurgical Review, or Quarterly Journal of Practical Medicine and Surgery, Vol. 1 : January-April, 1848 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The British and Foreign Medico-Chirurgical Review, or Quarterly Journal of Practical Medicine and Surgery, Vol. 1: January-April, 1848 Sanitary eonu has now taken its place as the great question of the day. To this post of honour it has won its way, much more by its own in. Trinaie merits, than by the exertions of the Associations, some of whose literary productions will be found at the head of this article. In making this remark, we desire rather to do honour to the cause itself, than to detract from the merits of the earnest and philanthropic individuals who have given themselves to this labour of love; and the fact that the majority of the working members of the associations belong to our own pro tsasion, makes us only, the more willin to do justice to their patriotic efforts. The cause which. They have on in hand forms one of the few exceptions to that wholesome practice which the members of the profession have, for the most part, very strictly observed, of abstaining from all poli tical agitation. Indeed it may admit of doubt whether the movement in favour of sanitary reform can be justly placed in the category of political agitations. Such an association would do rade it from the dignity which it justly claims of a world-wide question, gown to the low leve of a party conﬂict of which England isthe narrow theatre. This is not the light in which its friends regard it; and the interest which it has excited on the Continent proves that they are not peculiar in the view they take of it.
