Report on Progress in Therapeutics

1887 Boston Medical and Surgical Journal  
I operated at the patient's home on March 23d. The breast was removed, together with a large amouut of skin and nearly the whole of the pectoralis major muscle, to which it was attached, and which, on its upper surface, was studded with an occasional small nodule. The axilla was thoroughly cleaned out, according to a method I first heard insisted upon by Dr. M. H. Richardson ; namely, to first expose the axillary vessels and then to remove the contents of the axilla.
