“…Let the Surgeon be bold in all sure things, and fearful in dangerous things; let them avoid all faulty treatments and practices. They ought to be gracious to the sick, considerate to their associates, cautious in their prognostications. let them be modest, dignified, gentle, pitiful, and merciful; not covetous nor an extortionist of money; but rather let their reward be according to their work, to the means of the patient, to the quality of the issue, and to their own dignity. “
