J. A. EASTON, M.D.,
FELLOW OF THE FACULTY OF PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS OF GLASGOW;
PROFESSOR OF MATERIA MEDICA IN THE UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW.
MY DEAR PROFESSOR,
I always recall with gratitude and pleasure the fact that in your Asclepia I first read the tablets of medicine; and have long courted the opportunity of expressing publicly how much I am indebted to your profound learning, your experience, and your kindness, which, communicated at first to the student, have been extended unremittingly to the practitioner and author.
That you may long live, and long fill the position you have so deservedly earned in medical science, is, my dear Professor, the
sincere wish of
Your affectionate and obliged friend,
BENJAMIN W. RICHARDSON.
