[2]I have not done very much in the literary line. I have been too busy with the active duties of professional life. I now regret that I did not do more, but I have written a number of magazine articles viz Cerebro Spinal meningitis. Epedemic in New York. "Aphasia" "Injuries to brain," "Typhoid Fever, "Hydrophobia" "Intestinal obstruction" "Puerperal Eclampsia," "Ectopic Gestation". Placenta previa" "Pregnancy and Cardiac lesions." Myoma and other tumors, "Pneumonia," Report of Pneumonia and pleurisy in Methodist-Episcopal Hospital", St Giles Disease" [Two years?] report of Typhoid fever in Methodist Episcopal Hospital, Various reports of [illegible], etc etc." This is but a small expression of the experience and work of a busy physician & surgeon during a period of more than thirty years. it however represents much labor for I am not a ready writer, I presume if I had written much more it would have been less difficult . If your picture which you sent me represents you as you appear to day you have not changed
