Excerpt from The Transactions of the Edinburgh Obstetrical Society: Sessions 1869-70-71
The communications and discussions represent indi vidual opinions only, and are not to be received as the expressions of opinion by the Society as a body.
On the part of the Society, the Committee cannot but refer to the great loss the Society has sustained by the death of its most distinguished ornament, Sir James Young Simpson, whose valuable contributions and eminent services to obstetric and other sciences are admitted by all to be of world-wide reputation. From that he was amongst its earliest Fellows, from the great interest he took in its progress, even up to the time of his death (his last appearance in public having been at one of our ordinary meetings), and from the numerous communications he submitted to it, the Society cannot allow this opportunity to pass without recording how deeply it has deplored his loss.
