Excerpt from The New England Journal of Medicine and Surgery, and Collateral Branches of Science, 1826, Vol. 15
He was in the habit'for the many years he was so much employ ed, of devoting not less than sixteen hours of each day to the drudgery of his profession; he usually rose at six o'clock in the morning, and occupied himself till half-past eight in answering let ters, writing consultations received the day before, and arranging the visits for the day. Until half-past ten o'clock, he saw patients at his own house, after which hour he paid visits till six o'clock. He generally allowed only two hours of relaxation for dinner, spending the remainder of the evening, and often till a late hour at night, in again paying visits. After such a day's labour, it could hardly be expected that his sleep was sound and refreshing.
