Experience of a Medical Student



News-Commentary, Drollery


Lecturing, Mental Illness

    Reports on Alexander Peddie who gave a paper to the Medico-Chirurgical Society of Edinburgh on the 'treatment of drunken maniacs' and covered the topic 'in an exhaustive manner'. Observes that the 'exhaustiveness' of Peddie's lecture is 'too general' a 'characteristic of scientific lectures; for most of those discourses exhaust either the patience or the nervous energy of the audience'.
