THE OLD DOCTOR—the narrator of these reminiscences, is well known to the readers of The Texas Medical Journal. He is the Journal's Fat Philosopher "Our Genial Friend" "The Jolly Old Doctor' etc., as he is variously called, through whom the editor has for some years gotten off "good jokes" especially on himself; and who, now and then, has been in the habit of dropping in in the Journal's sanctum and regaling tired editor and employees with his humorous views of things. It is an interesting and somewhat remarkable fact that most Southern men, especially of the older generation, however well educated, and who write and speak the English language correctly, nevertheless, in their familiar social intercourse make use of expressions which they know to be grammatically incorrect. I attribute it largely, if not altogether, to early associations with the black slaves of the South, our nurses in childhood. It is disappearing with the younger generations. It is not "slang" so much as a corruption or mispronunciation of words, or the lack of a distinct pronunciation of each syllable, and the consequent , running together of words.
