9041. WATERHOUSE (Dr.), Marine hospital appointment.—[continued].

Dr. Waterhouse has been
appointed to the Marine Hospital of Boston, as
you wished. It was a just though small return
for his merit, in introducing the vaccination
earlier than we should have had it. His appointment
makes some noise there and here,
being unacceptable to some; but I believe that
schismatic divisions in the medical fraternity
are at the bottom of it.—
To Dr. Benjamin Rush. Washington ed. v, 225.
(W. 1808)
