On Some of the Mental Affections of Childhood and Youth: Being the Lettsomian Lectures Delivered Before the Medical Society of London in 1887, Together With Other Papers (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from On Some of the Mental Affections of Childhood and Youth: Being the Lettsomian Lectures Delivered Before the Medical Society of London in 1887, Together With Other Papers
When you, sir, and your colleagues on the Council of the Medical Society of London, did me the honour to request me to deliver the Lettsomian Lectures on Medicine for this year, I bethought myself that mental deviations in childhood and youth had never been the subject of a disquisition from this chair, and that probably a period of nearly thirty years spent among children with various phases of mental affection might entitle me to bring before the members of this Society material which, from the nature of the subject, can only be accumulated by a few.
There is not much to be found on this subject in the early records of medicine.
