Excerpt from A Compendium of Lectures on the Theory and Practice of Medicine: Delivered by Professor Chapman, in the University of PennsylvaniaIN presenting this work to the public, the author expects it to stand chieﬂy upon the merits of the great man, in whose volu minous writings it is founded. Elevated on account of extra ordinary talent and learning, at the youthful age of twenty-six, to the adjunct professorship of Obstetrics, in the University of Pennsylvania, he was, seven years afterwards, elected to the professorship of Materia Medica, and, in the thirty-sixth year of his age, was transferred to the Chair most congenial to his tastes and acquisitions - that of the Institutes and Practice of Physic, and Clinical Medicine. For many years past, with few living competitors, he has stood, confessedly, at the summit of his profession. Distinguish ed for his acquaintance with the Opinions of others, he is per haps unsurpassed for originality.
