My mind is quite uneasy becuase I have some patients under my care that are dangerous and I am apprehensive of a fatal termination of one or two.These occurrences always give me pain. i will, however, discharge my duty and leave the issue to him who created them. Nothing is more calcualated to destroy peasce of mind than a dereliction of duty. When we are remiss, we can never feel satisfied.
