PREFACE.

It is perhaps hardly necessary to say that in the following pages only some of the important points which a patient should attend to have been given in each division of the subject dealt with. There are many other ways in which patients may co-operate with and aid their medical attendants beside those here mentioned. But to have attempted to give anything like all these would have made the book needlessly long; and enough has, we hope, been said to prove that, if learning, skill, and constant attention are required on the part of the doctor, something also is required of the patient, if the best prospect of a satisfactory result, in time of sickness, is to be looked for.
