TWO reasons have determined me to inscribe to you, the following Inquiries and Ob|servations. They are the fruits of studies which began under your direction; and they require the protection of a respectable medical name.

TO whom can they look up for that protection with so much propriety, as to the PRE|SIDENT OF THE COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS OF PHILADELPHIA?

WITH sincere wishes that your old age may long continue to be as honourable, as your life has been useful,

I am, With great respect, Your affectionate friend, BENJAMIN RUSH.

1st January, 1789.
