Excerpt from The Western Journal of Medicine and Surgery, 1840, Vol. 1 The basis of the Monthly Journal, Wtll we here present to the public, is the late Western Journal of the Medical and Physical Sciences, established in Cincinnati, Ohio, by Dr. Drake, in 1827, and continued into the 12th volume, and the Louisville Journal of M'edicine and Surgery, undertaken by ourselves in 1838, both of which have been for some time suspended. We shall send this number to the subscribers to those periodicals, and wish all who do not desire to continue their patronage, to return their copies forth with - those who retain them will be regarded as subscribers; and all who may have paid in advance for the two suspended Journals, will receive a credit on the books of our present periodical, for the ums that may be due to them. Our terms are payment in advance but we shall not Oxpect remittances till after the second or February number is received; which willbe put to press, as soon asa sufficient time has elapsed, to enable us to judge of the number of cepies that should be printed. Our price is five dollars a year, during which, twelve numbers of 80 pages each, making two volumes, will be published. The paper on which the present number has been printed, is inferior to what we desired and intend to use hereafter; but from the inter rupted navigation of the Ohio river, it was the best we could at the moment command. It will be seen, that we have not only secured the Editorial services of Professors Drake and Yandell, but expect the ce-operation of a respectable body of Collaborators, among whom are many of the most distinguished physicians and naturalists of the West and South.
