These lectures are presented in a particularly agreeable and interesting form, the author having interspersed his practical instructions with many historical allusions and literary references. The intelligent nurse cannot fail to find both entertainment and profit in their perusal. It is to be regretted that the subject is not treated in greater detail, but as far as it goes one finds everything to admire and but little to criticise.
