Dr. Foy's tribute.

Dr. George Foy, F. R. C. S., a distinguished physician and writer on medical subjects, who had visited Dr. McGuire, dedicated a fine work on anaesthetics to his host. The dedication read as follows:

To Hunter McGuire, M. D., Ll. D., Fellow and Past President of the American Association of Surgeons, Late Medical Director of the Stonewall Jackson Corps (Second), Army of Northern Virginia, C. S. A.

Those numerous, brilliant and successful operations, many of which he performed under great difficulties, have made his name honored and esteemed in two hemispheres. This book is dedicated as a mark of respect for his great ability, as a token of personal friendship, by the author.
