Excerpt from Joseph Rogers, M.D: Reminiscences of a Workhouse Medical Officer

My late brother was the descendant of three gene rations of medical practitioners, who, from the first quarter of the eighteenth century, plied the art of tending and healing the sick down to the last quarter of the nineteenth, for his elder brother relinquished his practice only about ten or a dozen years ago. And this was in the same locality. But soon after my brother Joseph was qualified he went to London and very speedily after he came to London he began the labour of his life - the reform, namely, of the medical relief accorded to the indigent poor. To this he surrendered the prospects of professional success and fortune - prospects which his professional abilities might have made certainties; for this he sacrificed popularity, health, and all that a vigorous constitution might have assured to him. He literally wore him self out by his labours.
