About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from Revelations of a Boston Physician The following sketches, intended to illustrate the miseries of the very poor, the delusions of diseased imaginations, the sham diseases of sham patients, and amusing episodes occurring during the course of real sickness, arc true, or substantially true. They were mostly derived from an experience of the last twelve years, as physician to the Board of Overseers of the Poor. Some of them were related to me by the patients themselves, as being incidents in their own life-history; others were cases in the practice of my father, the late Dr. Thomas Jefferson Stevens, who, at the time of his death, in April, 1879, had completed half a century of medical work. He was born April 22, 1803, in Enfield, N. II., and began practice in Marlow in 1826, where, in the old-fashioned days of lancet and saddlebags, he rode over the hills for eighteen years.
