This is an autobiographical book of medical practice written by a practitioner of Fort Covington, New York. It is written in a rough and ready manner with numerous anecdotes. It discusses everything from domestic nursing, diet, pills and prescriptions to all sorts of diseases. There is a clinical index. One is inclined to doubt therapeutic knowledge which says that lobelia, grindelia, euphorbia pilulifera and various herbal preparations are of service in treating asthma. Altogether the book offers a record of practical experience, but it is dispensed with a mass of verbiage.
