- from: Henricus Smetius, Miscellanea medica, Frankfurt am Main: Jonas Rosa, 1611
- Smetius reflects on his career since 1561, his interactions with fellow physicians, and his study of traditional and new medicinal practices, including those of Paracelsus. He discusses the challenges faced during war and civil unrest in Belgium, his move to Westphalia, and the reason for interweaving treatises from other doctors.
