Lectures andE ssays are arranged in the order corresponding to the date of their delivery or publication. They must, of course, be read with a constant reference to these dates, by such as care to read them. I have not attempted to modernize their aspect or character in presenting them, in this somewhat altered connection, to the public. Several of them were contained in a former volume which received its name from the Address called Currents and Counter-C urrents. Some of those contained in the former volume have been replaced by others. The Essay called Mechanism of Vital Actions has been transferred to a distinct collection of Miscellaneous Essays, forming a separate volume. I had some intention of including with these papers anE ssay on Intermittent Fever inN ewE ngland, which received one of theB oylston prizes in 1837, and was published in the following year. But as this was upon a subject of local interest, chiefly, and would have taken up a good deal of room, I thought it best ,to leave it out, trusting that the stray copies to be met with in musty book-shops would sufficiently supply the not very extensive or urgent demand for a paper almost half a century old.
