I most earnestly wish that the task of exposing abuses had devolved upon others?the officers of those hospitals in which pure motives hold sway, for instance; but as the question concerns the health, the limbs, and the lives of the poor, I, as medical officer of the city, cannot shrink from such a duty. The members of this Society, I know, will acquit me of any desire to censure the proceedings of my professional brethren. Many of the details I shall have to mention are necessarily dry, but their importance must be my excuse, and the lively discussion which will ensue will make amends. The special hospitals I will barely allude to.
