Here are numerous incidents in the career of a physician who has practiced fifty years. He recounts the difficulties of getting started in practice in Chicago and notes that his office at one time was right next to that of Frank Billings and Herman Spalding, at the corner of Jackson and State streets, where the Hub clothing store is at present. He recounts his experiences in joining a group organized by his brother-in-law, a captain in the Chicago Fire Department, to go to the Klondike to seek gold in 1898. The book has little scientific or literary value.
