It gives Us great pleasure to learn that every where in our country, with one solitary exceptin, he has been trea ted with kindness and attention by the physicians, and that he has collected, by this means, a mass of the most interesting and important information, which he intends to give to the world on His return to Paris It is to be hoped that the information which he will give to the world may lessen the em barrasments to which our commerce is frequently subjected in Europe, and establish more correct and rational views of the nature and origin of this dis tressing pestilence Every one must admire the zeal and perseverance of Dr. Chervin, and we sincerely hope that he will realize the most substan tial reward from the publication of his work.
