Seite 210 - The patient should first describe his complaint in his own way, as though these instructions were not before him, viz : their commencement, progress and presumptive causes. The age and sex of the patient, and whether he be married or single, should of course be communicated to the physician, if these circumstances be not already known.
Seite 161 - A trifling wound with a splinter or a nail, even after it has healed, has often produced a fatal tetanus. Worms in the bowels have produced internal dropsy of the brain, and a stone in the kidney has excited the most violent commotions in every part of the system.

They may, moreover, be conscientiously relied upon, since they were made with a view to prove the fallacy of the homoeopathic practice.

Seite 6 - In short, the ensemble of the symptoms is the principal and sole object that a physician ought to have in view in every case of disease — the power of his art is to be directed against that alone in order to cure and transform it into health.
Seite 211 - ... and their exact character. He should describe precisely the region or part, and on which side of the body they are seated, and how large is the space they occupy.
