MDCCCXXXIX.

“Quicquid enim ex phenomenis non deducitur, bypothesis vocanda est; et hypotheses seu metaphysicæ, seu physicæ, seu qualitatum occultarum, seu mechanicæ, in philosophia experimentali, locum non babent. In hac philosophia propositiones deducuntur ex phenomenis, et redduntur generales per inductionem.

Newton. PRINCIP. Math. Phil., lib. iii., Schol. Gen.

TO THE

COURT OF EXAMINERS

OF

THE SOCIETY OF APOTHECARIES OF LONDON,

THIS WORK

IS

RESPECTFULLY DEDICATED,

IN HUMBLE, BUT SINCERE ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF THE BENEFITS CON-
FERRED UPON THE MEDICAL PROFESSION, BY THE IMPROVE-

MENTS THEY HAVE EFFECTED IN THE EDUCATION
OF THE PRACTITIONER OF MEDICINE, AND THE

CONSEQUENT HIGHER POSITION WHICH

HE OCCUPIES IN SOCIETY.

Guy's Hospital, Oct., 1839.
