Excerpt from The Transactions of the Medico-Chirurgical Society of Edinburgh, Vol. 8
The present Volume is the Eighth of the New Series, and contains a record of the work done during the past Session.
That work, as hitherto, embraces the communication of Original Papers; the exhibition of Patients, illustrating rare and interesting forms of disease; and the exhibition of Pathological and other specimens, so essential to the proper understanding of the morbid changes which take place in the human body.
During the past Session three Extra Meetings were held for Discussions on Special Subjects, - one on the Necessity for further Legislation for the Care of Habitual Drunkards, introduced by Professor Grainger Stewart; another on the Pathology and Treat ment of Strumous Glands, opened by Professor Annandale and Dr John Duncan; and a third on Intestinal Obstruction, its Pathology and Treatment, Medical and Surgical, introduced by Mr A G. Miller. It is hoped that such Meetings will materially increase the usefulness of the Society.
It is believed that the publication of the Transactions in this permanent form will prove a valuable contribution to medical literature, will encourage the Members to take a more active part in the work of the Society, and will tend in no small degree to increase the inﬂuence and usefulness of the medico-chirurgical Society of Edinburgh.
