Upon the receipt of this letter, I ordered my fon to demand the 50!. back; and to enter as a drefling pupil under another of the principal furgeons,' who had the character of being foconfeienu'ous as not to take money to give a young man inflruftion, which he knew he had it not in his power to give.

The.
