INSCRIPTION FROM EDMUND BURRY on title page; In 1775, John Clinch, a young surgeon/missionary, left the relative comforts of England for the New-found-land in pursuit of adventure and a life of service. Over 20 years later, His schoolmate, fellow surgeon-apprentice, lifelong friend and confidant, Edward Jenner, developed the smallpox vaccine and sent it across the Atlantic to Clinch where he administered the first vaccinations in North America to more than 700 people in Trinity, NL. In start contrast to his friend's fame, Clinch served the people of Trinity in relative obscurity for 45 years as a surgeon, Anglican priest, customs officer, justice of the peace, and magistrate. Driven to succeed, he was torn between his work, family, faith, beliefs, conflicting desires, and a secret he would take to his grave.
