LOUISVILLE, August, 1847. Dear Sir-Having bestowed on an attentive examination of your " FAMILY PRAC. TICE” all the leisure I can command, I am of the pinion that, with the wildition of the word well, which I shall take the liberty of making, I cannot better characterize it than you yourself have done, in your very modest an 1 s.ppropriate title-page, “ A Plain System of Medical Practice, will adapted to the use of f.milies."

The work appears to me to be thus adapted for the following reasons :

1. The matter it contains is sound and judicions, and sufficiently full and diversified for all the cases of dircase in which families the pives should attempt to employ it. Ween more is needed, recourse should be had to professional aid.

2. The descriptions of a weases are gezerully correct, and their changes and stagos well inarked ; and the style of the work is to simple and perspicuous, that no one at all acquainted with the English corns psi 107 can misapprehend its meaning.

3. The company of the work erbracing as it does every forn of diseas which an American Physician, in full praitice, can expect to encounter in a lifetime, is cufciently ample.

Wishing it, therefore, the reception and circulation, to which it appears to me to be entitled, I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

CHI CALDIELL, M.D., Prefessor of the Institutes of Medicine and Medical Ju:ieprudence. P.S Were it not that coin parisons are apt to be hell exceptionable, I would not hesitate to may, that I consider your "Faulli P&ACTIOK" the most valuable work of the sort of which I have any kuowledge.
