As medical practitioners we all come, sooner or later, to attach more importance to the results of our individual experiences in practical matters than we do to those of others; that is to say, as we exercise more and more our powers of observation we are likely to feel a constantly increasing degree of confidence in their accuracy. This may not seem modest or wise, and may even be an obstacle in the way of progress in the acquisition of knowledge. But these considerations are not to the point, and I shall not discuss them. I only desire to announce the fact. And, knowing this, I shall not expect that the facts which I have to offer for consideration, or the arguments based upon them, will have so much influence upon others as they have upon myself.
