Any contribution to thephysical, and hence the mental, perfection of woman should be welcomed alike by her own sex,by the thoughtful citizen, by the political economist, and by the hygienist. Observation of thetruths, expressed in a modest, pleasing, and conclusive manner, in the essay of Dr. Galbraithcontribute to this end. These truths should be known by every woman, and I gladly commend theessay to their thoughtful consideration.JOHN H. MUSSER, M.D.,
 Late Professer of Clinical Medicine
 
in the University of Pennsylvania.
 PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.THE author takes this opportunity to thank the medical profession and the laity for the verycordial reception which has been tendered the first edition of this small volume.The necessity for the use of technical expressions in a book written expressly for the laity mustalways be a matter of regret. And only those who have attempted to write a similar work canfully appreciate the truth of Herbert Spencer's remark, that "Nothing is so difficult as to write anelementary book on scientific subjects."The author has added to this edition a section on "The Hygiene of Puberty," one on "Hemorrhageat the Menopause a Significant Symptom of Cancer," and one on "The Hygiene of theMenopause."ANNA M. GALBRAITH.
