[Medical notes] [manuscript].
A collection of documents from John Archer's medical studies, primarily consisting of case records but also including subject treatises or lecture notes, a report of a post-mortem following the death of a patient from a polyp in his heart, and the text of an address by Archer to a student medical society. Most of the documents are from Archer's studies with John Morgan, but the post-mortem report concerns a patient of Thomas Bond's at Pennsylvania Hospital and the address to the student medical society, which is also marked Pennsylvania Hospital (f. 211r), may also be associated with Thomas Bond.
