Excerpt from Contribution to Assist the Study of Ovarian Physiology and Pathology

There is probably no department in physiology so generally attractive as Embryology. The student is drawn almost irresistibly to peer as deeply as he may into that mystery of mysteries by which a simple cell becomes converted into a thinking human being.

The study, then, of the gland in which the ovum is produced, the attempt to trace the ovum backwards to its earliest traces, and haply to discover some general law which might give the key to part of the mystery, is a study which is only too seducing, and may even lead to loss of time as great and apparently as useless as the studies of those who searched for the Philosopher's Stone and for the Elixir of Life.

Some time ago my attention was directed in a special manner to the pathology of the ovary, and Mr. Spencer Wells was kind enough to allow me to examine a large number of the ovarian tumors which he removed by ovariotomy. A very little observation was sufficient to show that the so-called 'ovarian cyst' may be produced in many different ways, each morbid process being a modification, generally a very slight modification, of some process which physiologically takes place in the ovary.
