See our disclaimer. This remarkable book never got to see the light of day when it was written two centuries ago. Its author, a Georgian doctor produced this examination of 18th century medicine at the same time as publishing an extremely controversial book on infection. Alexander Gordon had proved conclusively that puerperal child-bed fever was passed between patients by midwives. The idea met with outrage and hostility and saw him forced to leave his native city of Aberdeen, leaving behind hundreds of carefully penned pages of The Practise of Physick, a near-complete general text of medicine.
Incredibly the final page of the original script even stops in mid-sentence as if the writer had fled there and then. Alexander, 97, West Regent-street, Glasgow. Gordon, A. Lister, and Ashley W. Ole Grell and.. Alexander, J.

For information about Alexander Gordon, we relied on A. There is a profound difference between indenture and slavery.
Slavery involves ownership of the entire person often not considered as such as property. Indenture is ownership of the labor of a person, usually in the form of payment of a debt, and, as the article above indicates, almost always under written contract. Slavery is forever. Indentures end, and the person is then free to pursue their own lives. As the descendant of at least two Dunbar prisoners, I strenuously object to confusing indenture with slavery out of emotion and ignorance, or for dramatic effect. My ancestors were not sold—their compelled labor as prisoners of war was sold to pay off the cost of their luxurious travel across the North Atlantic in chains in the hold of a small merchant ship.
It was unfair, it was abusive, and it was misused, but they were never, ever, slaves. Each and every Dunbar and Worcester prisoner who made it to New England and survived their indenture was then free to create their own lives—lives that were in almost every case better than they could possibly have had in Scotland. It is a profound and self-serving insult to the enslaved Native Americans and Africans who, along with their children and family members, were truly slaves and disposable property for generation.

Much the same happened in and Many of those captured Scots were sent to the American colonies. Your email address will not be published. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. New England Historical Society.
