Excerpt from Medical Communications of the Massachusetts Medical Society, 1901, Vol. 18: With an Appendix; Containing the Proceedings of the Councillors and of the Society; In Three Parts The American medical profession is certainly characterized by a great readiness to learn and an eagerness for practical knowledge. If the French poet is correct in claiming that the, great evil of our time is due to inertia and the great virtue is enthusiasm, * certainly much is to be expected of the American profession, for its enthusiasm is without limit. The Autocrat has said: Nothing sheds such light on the superstitions of an age as the pre vailing interpretation and treatment of disease, and it may be added that nothing is a better measure: of the worth of a profession than its literature. American medical literature was tho roughly provincial for a long period; eagernesss for the teaching of others, however, and a knew ledge of personal defects are commendable traits and furnish a good foundation for wisdom. Ameri can medical text-books, until recently, were chieﬂy translations of American issues of foreign books, sometimes with commentaries by the American editor.
