Excerpt from Brain, Vol. 25: A Journal of Neurology, Edited for the Neurological Society of London

IN obedience to the custom which has prevailed here that the new President shall introduce himself to the Society by giving an address, and shall render at the same time his acknowledgments for the signal honour which has just been conferred upon him, I invite you to enter with me for a few moments on the consideration of concussion of the brain in some of its surgical aspects. Availing myself of Presidential, if not exactly poetical license, I shall use the term con cussion of the brain in the widest sense, to include much that accompanies, and is a good deal more than simple concussion alone. The subject is well worn, but not, I believe, by any means exhausted, and. There are surely no members in any section of this learned society to whom it can ever fail to be of interest, and sometimes of personal concern. In the first place to the surgeon, because by the exercise of his skill, both diagnostic and manual, the sufferer from concussion may perchance find relief or rescue from impending death; to the physician whose part it may be.
