Johnstone, Robert (1805-1847).

Robert Johnstone was born in Goshen, County Longford, Ireland, in January, 1805, and had the usual

elementary education available for lads of his day and locality. At the age of fourteen he was apprenticed to Mr. Martin Foril, an apothecary of Tuan, County Cialway, for the term of three years, and in 1823 matriculated in Trinity College, Dublin, where he probably took his M.

His tastes inclined him to internal medicine and obstetrics, almost to the exclusion of surgery, which he studied only to attain proficiency in the more
