There he led the life of a student. In 1873 he reluctantly con- sented to lecture in the Eclectic Medical College of New York, but relinquished it, disgusted, in 1877, only, however, to take a chair in the United States Medical College a year later. This institution was closed by a curious decision of the Court of Appeals, that a medical college was not a scientific but an eleemosynary institution. His tastes and aptitudes, however, are philosophic rather than medical. In 1873 he helped organ- ize the 'American Akademe" at Jacksonville, Ill., and edited the first four volumes of its Journal. Besides this, in 1874 he edited the treatises by H. M. WESTROPP and C. Stainland WAKE on Phallicism; of Thomas TAYLOR on Eleusinian and Bacchic Mysteries; of Hyde CLARK on Serpent and Siva Worship, and R. Payne KNIGHT on Symbolical Language of Ancient Art and Mythology. He has also in preparation a History of Medicine, a Treatise on Ancient Symbolism and Serpent Worship, and a translation of Iamblichos on Mysteries of the Egyptians. He has printed the following pamphlets: Intermarriage of Kind- red; Ganglionic Nervous Systems; Mind. Thought, Cerebra- tion; Philosophy and Ethics of the Zoroasters; Later Platon- ists; Paul and Plato; The Soul; Life Eternal: The Resurrec- tion. 979. v. PETER, b. Apr. 20, 1760 [NOTE]; m.
