PREFACE.



IT was long a matter of doubt with me, as it still
is, I believe, with many of my professional bre-
thren, whether medical works, written for unpro-
fessional readers, were not calculated to do as much
mischief as good. Now, however, with the expe-
rience of what the general improvement in educa-
tion 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 produc-
tions 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.

Every practitioner of my own standing must well
remember the time when old nurses were the autho-
rity that regulated the treatment, not only of trivial

IV PREFACE.

ailments, but of almost all the most serious disor-
ders of infancy and childhood. Most mothers sur-
rendered their judgment in these matters to the old
nurse of the family, and every village had an old
crone for its oracle in all matters of surgery and
medicine. The farrago of absurdities, which was
then generally practised, is now utterly discarded
by all but the grossly ignorant ; and to what, let me
ask, is this improvement to be ascribed, but to a
more free and candid intercourse between intelli-
gent practitioners and their patients, and to the
general perusal of popular treatises on medical
subjects ?

I am confident too, that, with growing intelli-
gence on these matters, there is an increasing de-
pendence on well-educated practitioners. Fathers as
well as mothers of families, who have acquired
rational views on this subject, now manage dis-
creetly the minor accidents and ailments, which
ignorant nurses formerly mismanaged; but they
know too well the profound judgment and practical
skill that is required for the treatment of more
serious cases, to hesitate or procrastinate in calling
for the aid of highly-educated practitioners, when-
ever such cases occur. Neither is it amongst the
readers of popular medical treatises that we meet
with advocates for advertised nostrums, pretending
quacks, or illiterate bone-setters.



PREFACE.

The public being now accustomed to professional
works written by surgeons and physicians of emi-
nence, a sufficiency of general readers will, no
doubt, continue to be found, to create a demand
for further publications of the kind. The ques-
tion therefore is not, whether such works do good
or harm, but what style and character of writing
will best instruct the reading public on a subject, so
interesting to all, as the preservation and restora-
tion of health.

The object of such a work, I apprehend, should
be to prepare the reader to meet sudden emer-
gencies, and to treat minor accidents and ailments ;
to teach him to discern danger, and to impress
upon him the necessity of calling early to his aid
the superior judgment, and acquired knowledge of
the experienced practitioner in all cases of im-
portance.

With these views I venture to add to the number
of professional works for non-professional readers.
I have selected the epistolary style as most free and
familiar, and therefore best adapted for the com-
munication of useful knowledge, when the pedantry
of the schools and the jargon of technicalities are
purposely avoided; and I have addressed myself
more particularly to the Clergy, because from edu-
cation they are better prepared to receive instruc-
tion, and to comprehend the limits, within which it

is intended to be applied in practice ; and because,
from their position in society, they must neces-
sarily be most frequently called' upon to exercise
their judgment, and bestow their advice on those,
for whose ultimate benefit the work is designed.

Of all classes of society in all Christian countries
the ministers of religion hold pre-eminently the
most important place. The possession and proper
exercise of political power, it must be allowed, has
a vast influence over the temporal happiness of
nations, but the efficiency of the ministry of the
gospel affects both our moral condition here, and
our destiny hereafter. A national establishment
affords the surest means of extending such a mi-
nistry over the whole population of a country, and
this surely is one powerful argument in favour of
its propriety. Every man of reflection, who can
look back, as I can, upon the transactions of half a
century, must rejoice at the vast improvement in
the condition of our own established church. Merit
is now the passport to the highest dignities, and
the highest dignitaries are working safe and im-
portant improvements in the whole clerical com-
munity. The number of our resident village pas-
tors has, within the last fifty years, been nearly
doubled ; their education is of a higher order, and
the zeal of a great proportion of them is more pure
and more ardent; and the time is fast approaching,



PREFACE. Vll

I trust, when every village in England will be
blessed, and the eternal interests of its inhabitants
be watched over, by such a resident clergyman of
the established church.

That every such resident should hold a strong
place in the affections of his flock is greatly to be
desired : an interchange of kindly offices will surely
both generate, and be generated by, such affection.
And if the humble efforts of the author of this
volume should in the slightest degree facilitate
such interchange, one object of its publication will
be attained : and should the less educated portion
of such pastor's flock, only in a few instances, ex-
perience, through its means, restoration of health,
or mitigation of bodily pain, the author's best feel-
ings will be gratified, and his object will be then
fully effected.
