I am sorry, indeed, that circumstances would not permit of my being with you this morning as announced on the program. However, I must content myself with the time allotted to me this afternoon, a duly appreciated courtesy granted by the chairman. Dr. Murphy having demonstrated his gall bladder operation upon the dog prevents me from making anything more than a passing remark upon this operation. However, I wish to speak more fully upon the various other anastomoses. No. 1.
That I might simplify matters both in my remarks and demonstrations I have, with the assistance of an artist been able to give charts that are more instructive than words.
No. 2. Six of these fully illustrate an end-to-end anastomosis, while four show the operation upon the stomach as suggested by Maunsell of New Zealand, some eleven years ago, but which was not published and made known until one year
