The Village Pastor's Surgical and Medical Guide - Fenwick Skrimshire

Excerpt from The Village Pastor's Surgical and Medical Guide: In Letters From an Old Physician to a Young Clergyman, His Son

It was long a matter of doubt with me, as it still is, I believe, with many of my professional brethren, whether medical works, written for unprofessional readers, were not calculated to do as much mischief as good. Now, however, with the experience of what the general improvement in education and diffusion of knowledge has effected in the dispersion of error, and the introduction of useful truths, on this, as well as on every other subject, either of art or science, I am decidedly of opinion, that the mind of that class, for whom such productions are intended, is prepared to seek, and enabled to receive, instruction on a subject so peculiarly interesting to every one as the preservation and recovery of health.
