Book excerpt: Excerpt from The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, Vol. 32: February to August, 1845 We might go 011 with this statement, but we do not believe that any scientific book has ever been published in America, on which the opinions of the most competent existing authorities have been so fially and favora bly expressed. We fear that Dr. Draper is justified in the observation Ire is said to have made, when the Review was shown him, That it was too bad that the editor of the North American had caused his book to be reviewed by a person so grossly ignorant of the mere elements of che mistry, as to assert the oils and resins consist of carbon and hydrogen only.' It is a well-known fact that the resins are oxides, and most of the oils contain oxygen. Should such an article appear in the London Foreign Quarterly, or in any of those journals which systematically abuse everything that comes from America, we could at once appreciate the motive. But after the highest scientific authorities in London, Paris, Edinburgh, Berlin, Geneva, had spoken of this work so well, and treated it with such consideration.
