Description

Before J. Mason Warren departed to pursue his medical studies in Europe, Dr. John Collins Warren composed for him a volume of miscellaneous advice, suggesting lectures to attend and eminent physicians to meet, and charging him with certain commissions, including the acquisition of new medical and surgical books and instruments and choice pathological specimens. He notes, in particular, "Observe the manner and mode of different lecturers. Whether they use notes or not and every circumstance that can improve my lectures. For example, whether they have any person to aid them in doing operations on the dead body before a class. How they manage dissecting room demonstrations. Making preparations, demonstrating difficult parts, as nerves and deep seated viscera. These things will become very common to you, but to me they will be very interesting."
