The authors are alarmed by what they deem "the great increase of chronic diseases and their more suddenly fatal character, of late, than at former periods." They explain that, "of all the maladies by which mankind are assailed, none is more afflictive and distressing to relatives, or more deplorable and mortifying to the sufferers themselves than nervous affections, such as palsy, fits, insanity, &c." These are caused "by disease of the spinal marrow." The authors undertake earnestly to explain their position, particularly as the disease is "not suspected by our physicians as being a cause." FIRST EDITION. Not in Sabin, AI, Eberstadt, Decker, NUC. Not located on OCLC.
