The Work for the Year.
Selected writings of John M. Scudder.
The gospel of work again. He hopes for work, enjoyable work in doing good. "But it must be in the line of relieving human suffering, shortening the duration of disease, and saving life." Surely a noble gospel of work.—Ed. Gleaner.
THE WORK FOR THE YEAR.—It has just commenced, and I hope we all feel more comfortable that there is a full year's work before us. There are some persons, doubtless, who feel like resting, but our JOURNAL readers are not of the group. We have work, good work, and plenty of it, and we enjoy it. Just exactly what it may be we do not know, but this time next year we will be able to sum it up. But it must be in the line of relieving human suffering, shortening the duration of disease, and saving life. We propose to do it well, and at the close of the year be better prepared for the work of the year to follow.—SCUDDER, Eclectic Medical Journal, 1893.
