There is something unfair in the manner in which the public criticizes cases that do not recover under Homeopathic treatment. None of our systems will cure every disorder. Yet, whenever a death occurs under Homeopathy, the neighborhood acts as though Homeopathy had invented death, which was a phenomenon unknown until Hahnemann brought it from the infernal regions! Why! the bills of mortality since Hippocrates, are the bills of Allopathy. And in most cases, let the worst that can occur, it is no more than happens daily under that practice. But if the patient dies under Allopathy, he dies by precedent, and there is no responsibility.
~ Dr. James Wilkinson (1812-1899), a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
