Excerpt from Dispensaries: Their Origin, Progress, and Efficiency Read before the New York Medical Journal Association, on Friday Evening, April 21st, 1876. Mr. President and Members of the Association: Your attention is first invited to a partial consideration of the latter portion of my subject, viz., 'The Efficiency of Dispensaries.' I shall begin with the re-publication of a certain anymous volunteer contribution of my own, which appeared in the New York Daily Times. I was aroused to write this article on account of the previous appearance in the same journal of an inflammatory account of the case of an English woman named Ann Tipple, who was brought before the magistrates in the City of London for violation of the requirements of the Vaccination Act. This article of mine contains quotations from that inflammatory account, and gives certain dispensary statistics and personal experience connected with vaccination, in which department of medical service Dispensaries have done peculiarly effective work.
