DR. J. C. MASSIE :
DEAR .SIm-The profession is much in need of a work on the
Theory and Practice of Medicine; and such a work written by one of
their own number, and presenting the various modifications which dis-

Physician and Medical Correspondent, and from our knowledge of you,
personally, we are confident there is none better qualified by enlarged
reading and ample experience to supply this desideratum than yourself.
We, therefore, hope that you will not fail to present to the public,
at as early a period as possible, the result of your reflections and
experience in this interesting department of Medical Literature.
Entertaining the hope that you will oblige your friends by embark-
ing in this undertaking, we have the honor to be, with high appre-
Very truly your friends,
