Excerpt from Intercolonial Medical Congress of Australasia: Transactions of Second Session, Held in Melbourne, Victoria, January, 1889 Mr. President and gentlemen, - Your meeting here in Congress is one of the most important of the many very interesting events that will make this period memorable in the history of Australasia. The result of this Congress will be, I venture to believe, as greatly to the advantage of medical science throughout Europe and America, as it will be productive of great good in the country in which it has assembled. Eminent medical gentlemen have come from India and distant countries, as well as from all parts of Australia, to take part in the deliberations of this meeting; men whose reputation as medical scientists will give to the papers which they will submit to the Congress a position of commanding influence upon some of the greatest medical questions of the day. The range of work that comes within the compass of medical science is so vast that no one mind can grasp and treat in an exhaustive manner the several branches in all their varied bearings while, in the busy walk of practical life, few medical men can afford the time requisite for a close examination of more than one or two subjects of special study. These meetings are therefore of untold value, where the mental wealth acquired by individual scientists is collectively submitted to the critical analysis of their fellow workers, whose education, experienced observation and general knowledge properly fit them to discuss, consider, and estimate at their proper value the deductions that may with safety be drawn from the careful investiga tion Of the specialist.
