Jennings was an accomplished physician and lay preacher in Methodist churches in the upper James River Valley; this title offers his first collection of published essays, here on obstetrics and pediatric medicine; his later published essays on religion and politics led to employment as an editor of the Lynchburg Press from 1809 to 1815. Text followed by notice [p. 206] that he would "keep a supply of such medicines as may suit the purchasers of this book. Apply at New London" (then his home base), a glossary, and an index. Imprint lacks date; Jennings entered a copyright for this work with the United States District Court for Eastern Virginia in January 1804, so the date assigned here.
