    Proposal for sweeping reforms of the oligarchic Royal College of Surgeons which reflects the 'great wave of professional opinion which is slowly but surely rising and gathering force to sweep away the rottenness of the constitution, the inertness, inefficiency, evil traditions, and scandalous abuses of all kinds, owing to which our medical corporations, instead of aiding, have seriously obstructed the course of scientific progress'.
