TO

WILLIAM FARR, M.D., F.R.S., D.C.L.

MY DEAR Dr Farr,

The cordial approval and hearty encomiums you have, for the last thirty years, passed on this Book and on its companion Volume-Advice to a Motherdemand my warmest acknowledgments. You spoke highly of them when they first came out —when they and the author were comparatively unknown—long before the books had achieved their great popularity—their marvellous success.

Such commendation, coming from a man whose knowledge of Medical and Social Science is so vast, is most flattering to me, and has given me additional energy to make this Book still more complete and useful, and more worthy of that noble Science, in whose vineyard you and I have so long and so earnestly toiled.

I am anxious, therefore, to associate your name with my own, for I owe you a deep debt of gratitude. Accept, then, the Dedication of this Volume as a small token of my respect and esteem, and believe me to remain,

DEAR DR Farr,
Ever yours most sincerely,

PYE HENRY CHAVASSE.

PRIORY HOUSE, OLD SQUARE,

BIRMINGHAM, January 1873.
