We are in receipt of the following circular which is self explanatory:

A monument to the late Samuel David Gross, M.D., LL.D., D. C. L., Oxon; LL.D., Cantab.; LL.D., Edinburgh; LL.D., Univ. Penn., etc.

"American Medicine and Surgery has had no abler exponent than Samuel David Gross!

"There has been no man in our profession more honored by scientific associations and learned institutions, both abroad and at home, than Dr. Gross; none who have been more admired by their fellow practitioners, or revered by former pupils!

"A boy of studious habits, ambitious promptings, integrity of purpose, and purity of character; without the prestige of a name, or the influence of family or fortune, he rose, unaided, to the highest position in the profession of his selection. A man of marked personal character, with great acquirements, he made an impress upon American Surgery, which has served to dignify American Medicine!
