Excerpt from Aseptic Surgery in Theory and Practice, Vol. 27 I Thank the President and Council of the Medical Society of London for the honour they have done me in inviting me to deliver the Lettsomian Lectures. I propose to try and justify this choice by lecturing upon a subject which must be of interest to every one of the Fellows, whatever line of practice he may pursue. And, at the outset, it is desirable to say how I intend to proceed. As a matter of fact these lectures will be on the same lines, and a continuation of, the reports on aseptic surgery which I have published at intervals since 1890. It might be thought that little was left to be said upon such a well-worn topic. But every one knows that although all surgeons aim at asepsis, they endeavour to attain that end by many different and ever-changing methods. Some of these methods I have tested, and you will hear the results. I shall also try to tell you what has been the result of my own methods of treating wounds. To render this of value it will be necessary to lay emphasis upon the unsuccessful cases, and especially upon the circumstances which led to failure. I will not insult your intelligence by talking as though I operate upon the immortals, who die not, nor suppurate. All operators must have a certain percentage of sepsis. When sepsis occurs the cause is to be sought for in the patient, in the environments, in the methods, in the application of the methods.
