Description

Shortly before his death, Dr. J. Mason Warren began to assemble the manuscript case reports and correspondence of his father, intending to publish this material as a record of Dr. John Collins Warren's years of experience in clinical surgery. That project was never completed, although Dr. J. Collins Warren eventually organized the material and donated it to the Boston Medical Library for its historical value.

On considering whether to inform a patient of incurable illness, Dr. Warren counsels that, in cases of extraordinary suffering, "The physician must interfere and administer those alleviations which science furnishes and humanity calls for. The inhalation of ether is a valuable resource and ought to be adopted, the patient and his friends having been of course previously consulted."
