Lectures on Public Health: Delivered in the Lecture-Hall of the Royal Dublin Society (Classic Reprint)
Ladies and Gentlemen, - I have to crave your indulgence for the many shortcomings that must appear in this lecture, and I trust you will remember the comprehensive nature of the subject, and understand that it is impossible to give more than a chalk outline of it, bringing into relief such points as relate especially to the health of this city.
Sanitary science, which embraces everything that can prevent disease, and so promote the public health, has long occupied the minds of thinking men in other countries, and now in Ireland the question is asked, what is the meaning of the term, so familiar a one in England, on the Continent, and in America? Some of our fellow-citizens, lay and professional, have established a Sanitary Association in this city, and the Science Committee of the Royal Dublin Society, acting in concert with the Association, have resolved that lectures upon the subject should be delivered in this theatre. This augurs well for the future. I may say that these lectures will not be for the purpose of announcing any novel doctrine. Their object will be to draw the attention of our fellow-citizens to tho nature, the great importance, and the extent of the subject.
In this attempt, which is not the first of the kind in Dublin, we feel ourselves at a disadvantage.
