The story of Doctor Jenner and smallpox is told by guests at a dinner party at an old English home, on the evening of the 180th anniversary of Doctor Jenner's death. To celebrate the occasion, the individuals review his life story, including his many discoveries and the trials and tribulations associated with smallpox vaccination being accepted as the way to prevent smallpox. Jenner eventually received universal acclaim. The guests at the dinner party, in the process of telling the story of Doctor Jenner, reveal a great deal about themselves.

Because this is lie ....Smallpox epidemics were almost seasonal in those early times in 1716 a slave that belonged to Cotton Mather named Onesimus said he had had an "inoculation" in his country (Ghana) as a child before he was taken as a slave. A friend of the Mather family also a Dr. Boylston agreed to try it on is own son a his 2 slaves. Boylston inoculated his own six-year old son and two of his slaves. All three contracted a mild case of smallpox but soon recovered and showed resistance to further exposures. Encouraged by this success, Boylston inoculated 247 more persons, 6 of whom still died as a result of the disease It did not take long for news of Boylston and Mather's experiment to spread in a town of 11,000 residents. Although experiment appeared to be successful, many people opposed practice, fearing it spread disease rather than prevented it. Mather and Boylston endured verbal abuse and even death threats from infuriated public, including a failed firebomb attempt on Mather's house. Despite these threats, as well as Selectmen's order for Boylston to stop, Boylston continued to inoculate anyone who requested the procedure. After epidemic ended, Dr. Boylston was invited to London to receive honorary membership in the Royal Society of London. BUT general acceptance of inoculation against smallpox did not come until late in 18th C, thanks to a physician named Edward Jenner who gets all the credit (remember whites in general would never give a black slave credit for saying the sun came up in the East) Washington at 19 had a brush with smallpox and it did provide Washington with immunity from further attacks of the disease, the benefits of which would not become apparent until many years later when it became a problem with his Continental Army who he had inoculated. I am shocked a Dr would write such a lie.
The depth of the author's research on Dr. Edward Jenner, (THE MAN WHO SAVED THE WORLD FROM SMALLPOX) is nothing less than awesome------and must surely represent this author's "MAGNUS OPUS" in which the reader can share. A modern day reader with a non-scientific or medical background learns of the unspeakable ravages the smallpox malady had on individuals, nations, and even great tides in history.

The background, hardships, and accomplishments of Dr. Edward Jenner, a British physician two centuries ago, are unfolded by Dr.George Smith, a current U.S. physician, in the format of an after dinner fireside chat at an old, royalistic mansion in rural England on the occasion of the 180th anniversary of Dr. Jenner's death. The participants are four couples, each of whom has extensive and varying scientific/medical backgrounds, and each is well versed with Dr. Jenner's quest, hardships and obstacles, as well as his achievements that led to the elimination of the smallpox horrors from this planet.

As presented in the fireside chat format, the reader becomes a listener in a VERY EDUCATIONAL AND CAPTIVATING TALE.
The author takes the life and times of Edward Jenner and lulls the reader into a trance. We learn about the origins of smallpox, the various intersting people and places involved in the history of this devastating disease Then we learn about Edward Jenner and his successful vaccination from cowpox.

The story is written in a unique style that goes from the present back to the past in a seamless storyline.

Excellent work.
