Abstract:

Three letters to his brother, Dr. Ruben Champion of West Springfield, Massachusetts, describing his studies at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. He offers appraisals of the faculty, especially David Hosack, Wright Post, and William MacNeven, and describes in detail the surgical operations of Valentine Mott. He mentions the difficulties in obtaining "material" for the anatomical classes, noting that the governor has had to post guards at the city's potter's field and has offered a reward of $100 "for anyone found in such business." He expresses regret that he cannot afford to take another session which would allow him to receive his medical degree.
