Brewer on his surgical lectures delivered to the students of the New York Training School for Nurses, which was attached to the municipal City Hospital located on Blackwell's Island (later Welfare Island, now Roosevelt Island) in New York City. He discusses infection, shock, hemorrhage, aseptic and antiseptic surgery, anesthesia, and head injuries.
