Excerpt from The Institutes of Medicine The Author of this work has endeavored to keep before him the difficult objects of adapting it to the student in medicine and to the more advanced. For the advantage of the former, there fore, he has aimed at such method as he might command, and such illustration as might not seem irksome to the latter. With a view to the former, also, he has endeavored to indicate the in timate manner in which all the topics embraced in the work are related to each other, and their mutual dependences, by constant references from one part to others; and, what is unusual, the Author has made these connecting references in a prospective as well as retrospective manner. With a View, also, to the same objects, the Author had designed a more copious index; but as the stereotype was completed as long ago as the middle of N o vember, and as the state of his health, and other avocations, have not permitted him to complete the index, in its regular order, beyond the 125th page, he has concluded to print it as it now stands, and to extend it in a future edition. Many subjects, how ever, throughout the work, are now incidentally carried out in the index; but many of the most important receive only a gen eral reference, excepting as they are related to others which are more amply noticed.
