Description

H. I. Bowditch was the sole dissenting voice in the vote to expel homeopaths from the Massachusetts Medical Society in 1871. "By the sympathies excited among the laity, by our worse than foolish persecutions, we have built up their sectarian schools and hospitals, and the words Homœpath, Eclectic and Regular have become the watchwords for contending parties."

Bowditch delivered this address "for the future well-being of the Profession" to the Rhode Island Medical Society in 1886, arguing that orthodox and homeopathic physicians should be permitted consultation without repercussion and that homeopaths should be allowed to join state medical societies after giving proof of sufficient medical study and experience.
