BY JOB ORTO N.
Though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient, yet, for love's fake, I rather beseech thee, being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
Philemon, v. 8, 9.
A LEARNED Physician, Dr. Smith, H (in his Portrait of old Age, p. 257) expresseth his earnest desire, that physicians would study the gerocomical part of physic, or what relates to the health and ease of old persons, more than they do. “Indeed," faith he, “no part wants our help so much as this: for, among all the verbose Grecians, there is not one complete tract upon this subject. There are few to be found among all other writers ;, and those miserable and barred. The improvement that may be made in this part of phyfic would be as useful to mankind as any one discovery of nature hitherto made.”— The like may, in fome degree, be faid' of attempts to promote the religious improvement and comfort of aged persons. There are fone celebrated pieces of the Heathen,
Philosophers, on the subject of Old Age. 5877.
