Extract from the morning Chronicle Dec 5, 1831.

The Dublin surgeons. — "It should be universally known
to the honour of he dublin surgeons, that a considerable time
since they formed an association for the promotion of
anatomical science by devoting their bodies to
dissection. At the head of the list was Dr M, Cartney, the distinguished
Professor of Anatomy in Trinity College, Dublin.
They also purchased and laid out a burial ground in the
vicinity of the College, where their remains are to be interred
with funeral honours, after having served the cause of science
and humanity. The head of Dr O'Connor, a member of the
Association who died since its formation, is now exhibited in
the Anatomical Museum of the College, with a label attached,
recording the fact so honourable to his memory, that he
had bequethed his body for dissection for the benefit of mankind.
Were a greater number of scientific men to imitate this
benevolent example, the prejudice that now existes against
the only means by which surgical skill can be so generally diffused
as to give the poor a reasonable hope of receiving the benefit it might
bestow in their hour of need, would be speedily; and the frightful
crimes which appal all human feelings would no more be
known in our land."
