Previous to my graduation in Edinburgh on the 1st of August 1845, I submitted to the Faculty of Medicine a Thesis on Yellow Fever. This Thesis I have since corrected and enlarged, and now venture to publish. The labour of writing it was not great, for the materials furnished to me by my father were abundant. The original copies of his manuscripts are deposited in the Army Medical Board Office in London, and may be seen by any member of the profession. The plan of my Thesis is taken in part from a manuscript copy of the Lectures on Medicine delivered by the late Dr. John Gregory in the University of Edinburgh in 1770-1771. the Appendix contains a report by my father on the Principles to be observed in providing Barracks and Hospitals for Troops in the West Indies, dated Barbados 1844; and many of these principles have since been adopted by the government.
