Sida 32 - THE MEDICAL FORMULARY: being a Collection of Prescriptions, derived from the writings and practice of many of the most eminent physicians of America and Europe. Together with the usual Dietetic Preparations and Antidotes for Poisons. To which is added an Appendix, on the Endermic u-se of Medicines, and on the use of Ether and Chloroform.
Sida 64 - ... there is still a vast difference betwixt the slovenly butchering of a man, and the fineness of a stroke that separates the head from the body, and leaves it standing in its place. A man may be capable (as Jack Ketch's wife said of his servant) of a plain piece of work, a bare hanging; but to make a malefactor die sweetly was only belonging to her husband.
Sida 64 - Neither is it true, that this fineness of raillery is offensive. A witty man is tickled while he is hurt in this manner ; and a fool feels it not.

Sida 313 - The use of instruments of any kind ought not to be allowed in the practice of midwifery from any motives of eligibility. Whoever will give himself time to consider the possible mistakes and want of skill in younger practitioners, which I fear many of us may recollect, the instances of presumption in those who, by experience, have acquired dexterity, and the accidents which, under certain circumstances, seem scarcely to be avoided, will be strongly impressed with the propriety of this rule, as well...

Sida 209 - ... quantity of some cordial liquor. But this has been rare. Few take them longer than two or three days, and the majority of patients do not take them at all. It is proper to add that by cordials I mean vinous liquors. I have most commonly found cider grateful in the first instance, beginning with an ounce two, or three times a day, and increasing according to the effects.
