FERMENTED MARE'S MILK “Even in Russia itself it was with difficulty I could learn the particulars of the preparation. ... In the year 1781, when I first began to think of employing it in medicine, it was as little known in Russia proper as what it is now in Great Britain."-Dr John GRIEVE.

Ce ne serait pas trop présumer de la bonté de ce remède que de prédire que dans quelques années, les malades atteint de la phthisie, ce terrible fléau de l'humanité, renonceront aux voyages de Madère, du Cairo, d’Ems et des Eaux Bonnes pour se diriger vers les steppes de la Russie, et se rendre à Samara, Orenbourg et les autres contrées analogues au l'on prépare le meilleur Koumiss."-DR KARELL.

PROFESSOR OF THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE IN THE

UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW, ETC.

MY DEAR DR GAIRDNER,

I have taken the liberty of dedicating this small work to you, not because I consider it of sufficient merit to prove worthy of your acceptance, but as a slight token of my gratitude and kindly feeling towards an old and valued master, to whose teaching and writings I owe much of the little I know in practical medicine, and at whose hands I have received many favours in times gone by. That you may be spared to instruct as many generations of students in the future as you have done in the past, and that you may long continue to shed lustre on the profession to which you belong, and the University that has had the extreme good fortune to secure your services, is the earnest desire of,

MY DEAR DR GAIRDNER,
Your former Pupil,

THE AUTHOR.
