Drawing on doctors' daybook notes, correspondences, and other sources, this chapter gives a clear view of the physicians' orthodox livelihood in a broad social setting of rural and small-town practice. Daybook entries reveal a doctor's everyday practice, his medical observations, personal relationships with patients, and how his style of practice was rooted in his identity as a man. Daybooks also show physicians' fees and income and how difficult it was to maintain a steady income in the mid-nineteenth-century South.

Keywords:   daybook, livelihood, practice, patients, physicians' fees, income
