William Henderson (1810-1872) was a distinguished British doctor and fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh. He created a scandal by adopting the practice of homoeopathy. Henderson’s book "An Inquiry into the homoeopathic practice of medicine" (London, 1845) contains a description and defense of homeopathy followed by numerous case studies and treatments. In response, Doctor John Forbes published a critique of Henderson’s book in the January 1846 edition of the "British and foreign medical review" entitled "Homoeopathy, allopathy and ‘young physic.’" The critique was viewed as overly favorable toward homeopathy and Forbes, therefore, resigned editorship of that periodical. Henderson’s subsequent "Letter to John Forbes" appeared both in the "British journal of homoeopathy" (1846) and separately [See DNB]. All three tracts are included in the New York 1846 edition of Henderson’s "Inquiry" – each with a separate title page and pagination. Artikel-Nr. 000508
