Excerpt from The Ohio Journal of Dental Science, 1888, Vol. 8
This kind of life, away from home and its kindly inﬂuences, was a new experience to him; he found an absence Of the home surroundings and the sympathy and affection he had SO fully enjoyed in his father's house. The treatment he received made the greater impression upon him from the fact that he had not a strong constitution and was Often Sick. Unfortunately his feeble condition was sometimes regarded as feigned, and because of this he was Often-times taxed much beyond his real strength. He had several severe illnesses, and in two or three instances he was supposed to be past recovery. After remaining in the Academy two years he engaged in teaching, but a few miles distant from the Academy. He was thus engaged for three or four years; a part of this time, however, he was engaged in the neighborhood of his father's home. In 1840 he entered a college at Ripley, Brown co., and remained about a year, leaving there in. 1841, returned to Greene Co., and there engaged in teaching and the study of medicine, in which he had the late Dr. Samuel Martin, of Xenia, for his preceptor, with whom he not only had superior instruction in medical science and practice, but also had there inculcated, in a receptive mind, the views of the dignity and importance of medical science and practice that have ever characterized him, from that time to the present.
He practiced with and for his preceptor about one year; after which he removed to Bentonville, a small town in Fayette Indiana, where he soon established an excellent practice, especially for a. New country. Not being satisfied with his attain ments in medical science, he entered the Medical College of Ohio in 1846, and graduated in March, 1848.
