Dr. M’Burney Arrives
Is One of the Most Eminent Surgeons in the Country.
BUFFALO, Sept. 8.—Shortly after
10 o’clock Dr. Charles McBurney, the famous New York surgeon, drove hastily
up to the residence. Dr. McBurney was at Stockbridge, Conn., when the summons
to come to Buffalo reached him, and he came direct through. His appearance in
the case has no immediate significance and does not in any way reflect upon
the attending physicians. It was simply desired that the best talent in the
country in medicine and surgery should be present in order that in the event
of a fatal termination of the president’s wound there could be no criticism
and his family and friends would have nothing with which to reproach themselves.
Dr. McBurney is considered one of the leading surgeons of the country, and his reputation is world-wide. His counsel is desired, although the president’s advisors have the fullest confidence in Dr. Parke, who enjoys the highest reputation as a surgeon.
