Excerpt from Memoir on the Cholera at Oxford, in the Year 1854: With Considerations Suggested by the Epidemic

Tats brief Memoir on the Cholera, as it occurred in Oxford in the year 1854, is dedicated to you, not as in itself worthy of the honour of your names, but as enabling me to record a part of the debt of gratitude which I owe to you both, for your instruction during my pupillage, and your unvarying friendship from that time until now. I have lived to aid in conferring upon you in our applauding Theatre a Degree, by the acceptance of which you have added value to that honour, and have linked your names for ever with the University of Oxford. I think with satisfaction that shortly the Son of one of you will teach the highest branches of Chemical Science, where the Father of the other first thought out those principles of Mental Philosophy, that will be for ever associated with the name of Alison.

Not however for these reasons only should I have ventured to ask your indulgent patronage of this Essay; but I ask it also because, in the freedom of happy inter course, you enjoined on me, both by precept and example, to seek daily in our common Profession other fruit besides that which is indeed its first and most precious harvest - the Healing of Disease; to seek out, and to strive to in?uence for good, those hidden circumstances which, more than we are aware of, affect both the physical and moral happiness of individuals, and masses of society; circum stances which it is so much the desire of the present age to discover, and to guide. I saw in your own lives, how much of self-discipline and culture, what tender but active and wisely ordered charity every occurrence of daily life may be made to bring forth. How little of what you suggested I can hope to effect, is known only to the sadness of my own heart, and the observers of my failures.
