Major-General Sir David Bruce, K.C.B., F.R.S

Article metrics


SIR DAVID BRUCE was one of the greatest of the great physicians who deal less in healing of the sick than in the conquest and abolition of disease; he died of a dread disease on Nov. 27, in the seventy-seventh year of his age. His one fear had lately been lest his wife, the comrade of fifty arduous years, should be left helpless, but her release from suffering came four days before his own.
