111 Pioneers of homeopathy
by Dr Thomas Lindsey Bradford
Presented by Dr Robert Séror

Mr. William Leaf (1791-1874)

Biography of Mr. William Leaf (1791-1874)

This biography is extracted from the book of Doctor Thomas Lindsley Bradford (1847 - 1918) : " The Pioneers of Homeopathy" 678 pages, Boericke and Tafel (Philadelphia, 1897) (Pages 423 to 428)

* Mr. LEAF, WILLIAM. (1791-1874)

Reference is made to Mr. Leaf as follows : The eminent London merchant and well known philanthropist died on the first July, 1874, at his residence, Streatham Hill, in the 85 th year of his age.

We believe that there is no one unconnected with the profession of medicine to whom Homoeopathy is more indebted for the firm root it took its this country forty years ago than to Mr. Leaf.

A patient and intimate friend of Hahnemann, Mr. Leaf spared neither influence, money nor tune in his endeavors to secure the practice of Homoeopathy in England.

We purpose in our next number furnishing our readers with as full a record of the efforts be trade in this direction as the resources at our disposal will enable us to do.

In our issue of last month we referred briefly to the death of Mr. William Leaf, one of the oldest and most earnest adherents of Homoeopathy.

Mr. Leaf was such a conspicuous champion of Homoeopathy on its first introduction into England that he deserves something more than a passing notice in this journal. Very few professional men, and certainly no laymen, have done more for the spread of our art than Mr. Leaf.

He did not confine his efforts to spending money in this cause, though in this respect he deserves especial honor as the most munificent patron of Homoeopathy that has yet appeared.

During this career he cannot have given in various ways less than £ 20.000 towards the advancement of this system.

But he gave also time, thought, work, influence : and he incurred much obloquy and reproach in his advocacy. We cannot pretend to present a full account of all Mr. Leaf did - we believe that a more complete memorial of him is in preparation and will be published shortly.

The most important facts we shall, however endeavor to record.

Mr. Leaf's introduction to Homoeopathy occurred about the year 1833. He was then very ill - not with any acute disease, out from a chronic disorder, which no treatment he had pursued had at all relieved.

At this time he had business relations with M. Arlès-Dufour, then a large silk merchant in Lyon.

M. Arlès-Dufour was an earnest and enlightened homoeopath, and he induced Mr. Leaf to take some medicines which he himself prescribed for him.

The effect of these was so remarkable that Mr. Leaf was encouraged to continue the treatment. He went over to Paris, where Hahnemann was practicing, and placed himself under his care.

Ultimately he was cured, and retained the health which he then gained up to a very advanced age. It is plain that Mr. Leaf owed many years of life to homoeopathic treatment.

When he became a patient of Hahnemann's he had a damaged constitution, one which would not have been presentable at any insurance office, and his life did not appear likely to be prolonged more than a few years.

He was then 44 years of age, and he lived to the ripe old age of 84, retaining his bodily and mental faculties, unimpaired up to within a short time of his death. If Homoeopathy had done nothing more than giving to the world thirty years of Mr. Leaf's life, it certainly deserves the gratitude of society. Mr. Leaf was so impressed with the striking results of homoeopathic treatment in his own case that he at once placed his family under the same treatment.

He became an intimate, personal friend of Hahnemann ; went over to Paris every year to see him, and induced him to sit for his portrait, which is retained as an heirloom in the fancily.

Several of Hahnemann's letters to him also are carefully preserved, with a lock of the venerable master's hair. The letters are in French, with one exception, which is in English.

They refer almost exclusively to medical treatment, and have no special interest for the public. They give, however, an incidental illustration of the vigor of Hahnemann's mind, who was able to write with such accuracy and ease in two foreign languages. In the English letter there is scarcely a phrase which betrays the foreigner.

Dr Paul Francis CURIE (1799-1853)
Docteur Paul Francis Curie (1799-1853)

When Mr. Leaf became convinced of the truth of the new system of medical treatment, he was not the man to allow such a conviction to remain as a barren and neglected mental possession. He at once exerted himself to introduce it to his personal friends, to all members of the medical profession that he had access to, and to the public at large, by bringing Dr. Curie over to England to practice it both privately and in dispensaries and institutions which he either founded or liberally supported. He was persuaded by his friend, M. Arlès-Dufour, to bring over Dr, Curie in the year 1835.

Dr. Curie resided in his house for about a year, till he could speak English well enough to practice. Mr. Leaf then guaranteed him a handsome income till he was able to make his practice remunerative.

Owing to Mr. Leaf's help, Dr. Curie was soon engaged, not only in extensive private practice, but also in conducting several dispensaries far its more general introduction to the public.

His first effort of this kind was at his own house in Finsbury Circus. This continued about two years. Then he separated his dispensary work from his private practice by taking rooms for dispensary in St. Martin's le-Grand, an in Ely Place Holborn.

When Dr. Curie removed to the West Eal, he continued to attend at Ely Place till the Hahnemann Hospital was founded in Bloomsbury Square, this was done chiefly at Mr. Leaf's expense, and he was at the same time contributing liberally towards the Homoeopathic Institution in Hanover Square.

During the whole of the rest of his life he was a liberal supporter of homoeopathic dispensaries both in his own neighborhood, Brixton and Streatham, and in distant localities,

In this work Mrs. Leaf cooperated with him most energetically. They established a dispensary indeed at their own house at Streatham, which Dr. Curie attended every Sunday, and where poor people and even cattle and horses belonging to their neighbors were treated.

Mrs. Leaf would dispense the medicines as Dr. Curie prescribed them, and in this good work the Sunday afternoons were very actively employed. Mrs. Leaf also regularly every week visited the Hanover Square Institution, and encouraged her friends also to inspect the results of the treatment pursued there.

But Mr. Leaf did more than contribute liberally towards the support of these different institutions. He studied Homoeopathy in the French works, which were at that time the only expositions of it accessible to him.

He became very skilled in the practice of Homoeopathy ; that he should have become so is the more remarkable when we consider that this was only a subordinate pursuit, and that he was actively engaged in conducting a large business at the swine time.

Doubtless Dr. Curie assisted him in any difficult case that he undertook the charge of, but his own study rendered him to a great extent independent of such help.

He had a number of patients at Eastbourne, who came to his house there for assistance. No trouble was too great for him ; no effort was spared in order to spread !he knowledge of what Homoeopathy was, and could do.

On more than one occasion he took a journey (not a railway journey then) to Worthing and other distant places. merely to help poor invalids whom he was trying to benefit.

As Mr. Leaf became better acquainted with the resources of Homoeopathy, he was unceasingly anxious to induce medical men to study and practice it. Doubtless he first looked at their relation to Homoeopathy from a business point of view.

As a man well versed in commercial transactions, he knew that rapid, brilliant and lasting cures would add to the reputation and increase the practice of any medical man who could effect them. He was therefore very earnest in bringing it under the notice of his medical friends, being well assured that it would prove a commercial success to any medical man who could master it and practice it with skill.

He naturally thought that he had only to point out this medical El Dorado to his professional friends to induce them at once to appropriate its advantages. He was not prepared for the opposition which he encountered.

He thought only of the truth and value of the new system, its power to alleviate suffering and prolong life, and make life itself more fruitful in all good results. And he naturally thought that his medical friends would also keep these aims paramount over all lower considerations.

But to his cost he found that the love of truth and the desire to cure disease and relieve pain and weakness were not always the supreme influences in the medical profession.

His earnest advice was repelled with anger and contempt. Many of his friends despised him as a fanatic or a madman, and for many years he was exposed to an amount of reproach and social obloquy that would have daunted a less resolute nature.

Doubtless this was a kind of experience well fitted to bring out and ripen all the best qualities of his nature. A man of wealth has every inducement to shirk the battle of life and enjoy the ease which affluence places within his reach. Mr. Leaf was delivered from this snare by his championship of Homoeopathy, at a time when such advocacy brought with it contempt and reproach even more than it does now.

Mr. Leaf's enthusiasm for Homoeopathy led him to write a pamphlet in exposition of it. It was published anonymously by Leath, and went through several editions. The copy before us, dated 1842, is one of the "fourth thousand."

The title is : "Homoeopathy Explained and Objections Answered." This little work of forty-seven pages is written with considerable vigor and skill.

The topics are arranged in an orderly and logical way, and the arguments in favor of Homoeopathy presented with much force of expression and illustration. As a specimen we extract Mr. Leaf's answer to the objection that the cures of Homoeopathy are attributable to the faith and imagination of the patient.

To this he replies :

" The objection here made presupposes that a patient has faith in Homoeopathy, and is thereby cured ; the inference therefore is, that if equal faith had been placed in Allopathy that system would equally have cured him.

But has not the same amount of faith been accorded to the old school and its adherents ? and if so, has it in all, or in the majority of instances, effected a cure ?

Now, as faith in any system of medicine can only be the result of its works, it is evident that Homoeopathy must have been successful, or it could never have established the faith.

But this objection is indeed exceedingly futile : for it is clear that if the success of Homoeopathy depended upon the faith of the public, it never could have advanced a single step, since by far the greater number of persons who resort to its aid do so not only without faith in its powers, but absolutely with a prejudice against it, and really have recourse to it as a forlorn, hope, after the old school has signally failed to give them the relief which they require.

Such, in fact, was my own case, when I first reluctantly consented to make a trial of its remedies. I did so, as I have already stated, at the earnest entreaty of a friend, and without the slightest expectation or belief that means apparently so trifling and inadequate could effect any sensible change, either good or bad, upon my constitution.

The most beneficial effects, however, were produced, and upon these effects my faith has been built, which faith has been confirmed and increased by every day's experience."

And then he proceeds to notice the efficacy of Homoeopathy in the diseases of the lower animals and children, where faith is necessarily absent.

Mr. Leaf was born March 21st, 1791, and died July 3d, 1874, in the 84th year of his age. He had eleven children, two of whom died in infancy, four died after they were grown up, five survive him.

At the time of his death he had forty-two grandchildren, having lost three, and eight great grandchildren. He was a warm-hearted, benevolent man - not wearing, however, all his good qualities on the surface, for it was necessary to know him well to find out all the tenderness and sympathy that were often disguised by a somewhat blunt and reserved manner.

Indeed we have sometimes found that his feelings were often in the inverse proportion to his expression of them, so that you only discovered how deeply his sympathies were stirred by the acts of benevolence which they prompted. Often, however, he would unburden himself of the wealth of his inner feelings by writing what he would not trust himself to speak.

He was a devout Christian man, and the faith which prompted his good deeds sustained him in the heavy sorrows which the loss of his children caused him, and made his last hours tranquil and triumphant.

watched his lord's interests, superintended his demesne land and conducted
relations with the tenants of the manor through their representative, the
reeve. He was responsible to the lord or his steward for the efficient
carrying out of his duties."

A Farm Bailiff holds a similar position to a Reeve or Farm
Steward. He is responsible for the daily running of the Farm and
often if the owner is away makes major decisions as to the
requirements e g purchasing stock etc. he is also usually
responsible for the Hiring and Firing of Labourers and often
paying their salaries ( the owner provides the wherewithal)
Mostly if an owner can afford a Bailiff he will also employ a
Groom to take charge of the stables, but sometimes the
responsibility for the Horses is his as well.

GRANTHAM, George (I17456)
145 "(He)...was born in Tyendinaga, and converted in Prince Edward County under the ministry of Rev. F. B. Stratton, in 1870. Since that time he remained an ernest christian, full of Godly zeal, and always rejoycing in hope. For a few years past he has lived in the Township of Sombra (Lambton Co.)
