Excerpt from The Medical and Surgical Reporter, Vol. 18: A Weekly Journal; January, 1868-June, 1868

But we must not forget that we have much to do to fulfil our contract with our patron. We must cull facts from every source within our reach, encourage practitioners in city and country to record their experience honestly and faithfully, but brie?y, without waste of words, for our patron has not time to spend on speculative medicine and fine spun theories. He wants his literary food brought to him in small packages, and so prepared as to be easy of digestion. This we propose to do.

We have often heard our man of all wor who sends us on our errands, say that he values very highly the communications of the country doctor, with his varied experience and observation, even though they may some times be rather roughly written, and that they are of more real use to the physician, than the well-turned periods and speculations of some of the literary goslings, who, while they are waiting for practice in our large cities, write hugely on medical topics, of which they practically know nothing, and who don't like the reporter, because so many country doctors write for it. And just here let me urge the great importance of city and country physicians, of extended experience and oh servation, writing much more than they do for the journals.
