Morton, the first president of our society, after
a long and painful illness passed quietly
away, it becomes us to express our deep sorrow
at his death and our appreciation of his
labors; Therefore, be it
Resolved, First, that in the death of our
fellow Dr. John HI. Morton, the first president
of the society, we have lost one of our
brightest and most laborious members, our
city one of its best citizens and society one of
her most polished members; Secondly, That
we extend to his widow our sincerest condolence
in this her deep affliction, and that a

PHYSICIANS OF THE PRESENT.
Dallas being the largest city in the largest
county in the largest State in the Union, it
is reasonable to conclude that here is to be
found the largest as well as the most efficient
corps of physicians; and the writer states
without fear of contradiction that no county
in the State of Texas can excel in ability and
talent the medical fraternity of Dallas county.
They are men of culture and refinement, and
the most of them are Inen who have had
every advantage of a literary as well as medical
education. The practice of their profession
is not all sunshine. Many shadows fall
across their paths of life, many scenes and
experiences frequently cause them to carry
home an aching heart. The pleadings of an
almost heartbroken mother for the life of her
little one which has passed beyond his skill,
her wailings of despair, as she watches the
life tide of her darling ebb and flow, the despairing
anguish of the fond, affectionate wife
as she stands by the deathbed of the husband
who won her heart when her cheeks were
rosy with the blushes of girlhood, the deep
groans of manhood as the devoted husband
sees the life slowly leaving the form that for
years has lain upon his breast,-these and
many other scenes cause sorrow to come into
the life of the physician. No profession on
earth does more work of charity, and in many
cases receive in return only ingratitude.
In the following list of physicians of Dallas
will be found some of the brightest
minds in the medical world:
