In this article I do not claim to report any innovations but simply to call attention to some guiding principles of technic which have aided me greatly in histologic research in the field of ophthalmology.
Since I am forced to work in a small private laboratory that lacks the substantial equipment of an endowed research institution and since I am able to devote to scientific research only such time as a professional practice permits, I have found it in some measure expedient to adapt my research technic to these conditions. Accordingly, these notes, although of no value to workers in large laboratories, may be of some use to men who, like myself, must carry on in a small laboratory.
