Excerpt from The Corpuscle, Vol. 4: September, 1894
Now, I suppose the one thought in the minds of the gentlemen before me is, that a train Of conditions, circumstances and accidents which I have endeavored to group together, will never occur. No, not in one individual case; but every one of these things I have mentioned, and many others just as bad or worse, are occuring every day, in different cases, in the hands of different men, in natural labors - one thing done by one man, another by a second, another by a third, and so on through the list. I say natural labors, because you will remember that at the outset I allowed 12 per cent. Of all cases, which should cover prima-facia demands for necessary artificial help.
It is not infrequent to hear men say, I introduced my finger into the os and dilated it to a considerable degree; or, I crowded the remaining rim up8 the corpuscle.
