VOLUME ONE.—In closing our first volume we can not forbear making a few rambling comments, as to the past and the future. Our object, in the past, has been to teach, as best we could, pure homoeopathy, to illustrate it practically, to bring out the characteristics of old remedies, to introduce new—in short to do such work as would make us all more efficient in healing the sick. Thanks to the gentlemen who have contributed to our pages, we have been enabled to make a good start in this work. Thanks to our large (and steadily increasing) circulation, we have been able to publish over two hundred pages more than we promised in our prospectus. If we have done well in the past, we shall strive to do even better in the future.
In the past, we have endeavored to point out some of the pernicious innovations that are being introduced into homoeopathic practice; to condemn such errors as the use of unproved remedies, the alternation or combination of remedies, the use of palliatives and tonics, etc.
The periscope will contain, in a condensed and available form, all that is practically useful in current homoeopathic literature. In our book notices, reviews, etc., we will keep our readers informed as to all the best and newest works on medicine.
