Dr. Gilchrist, a surgeon of the right sort, i.e. one who places medicines first, in his small but important treatise on tumours, and to which I have already referred, makes the following remarks:.

“Prof. Helmuth, in his paper on The Influence of Homoeopathy upon Surgery, and Prof. Beebe, in one upon The Therapeutics of Benign Tumours, presented to the Worlds Homoeopathic Convention in 1876, held in Philadelphia, refers, at some length, to a large number of cases in addition to those I have presented. To the student I recommend a study of these papers.

“In all forms of tumour I have now referred to one hundred and thirty-two cases reported cured. All of these cannot be fraudulent, incorrect, or of doubtful diagnosis. Indeed, as tumours, differ, in these classes, mainly in a plus or minus of cellular elements, it can make but little difference whether the exact form is correctly diagnosticated or not. The fact of its being a tumour at all is the all-important question. Large as this list of cures is, it might readily be extended, but those who doubt would continue to do so if volumes were written.”.

James Compton Burnett
James Compton Burnett was born on July 10, 1840 and died April 2, 1901. Dr. Burnett attended medical school in Vienna, Austria in 1865. Alfred Hawkes converted him to homeopathy in 1872 (in Glasgow). In 1876 he took his MD degree.
Burnett was one of the first to speak about vaccination triggering illness. This was discussed in his book, Vaccinosis, published in 1884. He introduced the remedy Bacillinum. He authored twenty books, including the much loved "Fifty Reason for Being a Homeopath." He was the editor of The Homoeopathic World.
