IN responding to the Editor's request to write a small work on Cancer of the Stomach for the Nisbet Modern Clinics Series, I have tried to carry out his wish to make it practical and useful. In doing this it will be noticed that I have omitted much that might have been written on the pathology of the subject, and in other ways have laid myself open to criticism; but if it proves helpful to the busy practitioner and furthers in any way the early recognition and early surgical treatment of the disease, I shall have accomplished my purpose.
