Abstract

I propose to glance in a cursory manner at a few of the many interesting and curious facts concerning medical practice in the early days of the settlement of New England. It is a subject about which not much has been written and of which our knowledge is very scanty, compared with the thoroughness with which we know every other detail of the lives of the colonists.

But few of them devoted themselves to purely professional work, and their lives were too largely occupied with the battle against the difficulties which lay in the way of developing the new country to afford much chance for scientific or literary labor, had any of them the inclination for it.
