Excerpt from Plain Home Talk About the Human System, the Habits of Men and Women, the Causes and Prevention of Disease, Our Sexual Relations and Social Natures: Embracing Medical Common Sense Applied to Causes, Prevention, and Cure of Chronic Diseases, the Natural Relations of Men and Women to Each Other, Society, Love, Marriage, Parentage, Etc Common sense, I am aware, is quoted at a discount; especially by the medical profession, which proverbially ignores every thing that has not the mixed Odor Of incomprehensibility and antiquity. Medical works are generally a heterogeneous compound Of vague ideas and jaw-breaking words, in which the dead languages are largely employed IO treat of living subjects. Orthodoxy in medicine con sists in walking in the beaten paths of zesculapian ancestors, and looking with grave contempt on all who essay 'to cut out new paths for themselves. Progress is supposed to be possible in every thing except medicine; but in this science, which all admit has room for improvement, the epithet Of Quack is applied to every medical dis coverer. I trust I may prove worthy Of the denunciations of the bigot ed. This work is written for the amelioration Of human suffering, not for personal popularity. TO uproot error and do good should be the first and paramount aspiration Of every intelligent being. He who labors to promote the physical perfection Of his race; he who strives to make mankind intelligent, healthful, and happy, cannot fail to have reﬂected on his own soul the benign smiles of those whom he has been the instrument Of benefiting.
