The papers of Feb. 3rd last contained two rather remarkable documents. The “Times” had a long review of a sceptical book by the Duke of Somerset; the “Lancet” contained a report of Sir Wm. Gull's address at the Clinical Society. Both had this in common—that they were attacks on the old and established faith of the majority; but, happily, there the resemblance ends. The odd coincidence of their appearing together suggests, however, some reflections on the altered position of “free thinking” within the last few years. Not long ago medical men were credited as a class with a tendency to unbelief, but the progress of events has left them far behind in the competition for such a distinction.
