To be convinced of the vast importance of auscultation as a means of diagnosis, it is only necessary to peruse the present treatise; and I can offer no more powerful incentive to the reader, than to add my humble testimony in support of every statement contained in it, which I have had an opportunity of verifying. Several forms of disease there recorded, have not, as yet, come under my observation, and in some of the more common affections, I have not hitherto had occasion to notice every one of the signs described; but in no case have I met with any circumstance, either of a positive or negative kind, which could give me the slightest reason to doubt any essential parts of the author's statements.
At the same time, it would be exacting too much from the weakness of humanity, to expect, that the author of Mediate Auscultation should, in no case, have yielded to the enthusiasm naturally inspired by the consciousness of so great a discovery.
