(17 July 1858): 76

To the Editor of the Lancet

Sir,--I trust that the profession will evince some public testimony towards the late Dr. John Snow. Who does not remember his frankness, his cordiality, his honesty, the absence of all disguise or affectation under an apparent off-hand manner. Her majesty the Queen has been deprived of the future valuable services of a trustworthy, well-deserving, much-esteemed subject, by his sudden death. The poor have lost in him a real friend in the hour or need.

I am, Sir, your obedient servant.

W. Hooper Attree

Formerly House-Surgeon to the Middlesex Hospital, &c.

Bognor, Sussex, July 1858.
