Description

Photocopy of a three-page letter from Ezekial Dodge Cushing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Benjamin Franklin Heywood in which he compares the medical lectures of University of Pennsylvania to those at Dartmouth and finds that they are not on a par with each other. He does not find an advantage in Hospital Practice, however, since there are too many people participating and it is impossible "to hear or see or feel the pulse or learn anything," he thinks that it would be better if he stayed in Boston and learned first hand from Dr. Shattuck and Dr. Goddard.
