PREFACE.

THERE have been a good many books written upon nursing which are most useful guides for Hospital Sisters and Nurses. This little work is intended for the perusal of women whose home ties do not permit of their gaining the advantages of hospital training.

Although fully aware that nursing cannot be learnt from a book, still a few hints and directions here laid down may be found useful.

My thanks are due to Mr. Thomas Godart, the Librarian at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, for drawing the plates, which I hope will assist the beginner in the art of bandaging, and help the reader in rendering aid in case of accident.

SAMUEL BENTON.
