Excerpt from Publications of the Massachusetts Homoeopathic Medical Society, Vol. 6
So far everything has gone more favorably and easily than the most sanguine members of your committee had dared to hope. The committee and the Legislature have shown a dis position to favor our cause that was wholly unexpected, and it shows that the effort made by the society was not prema ture. But the end is not yet; and though it may sometimes be true that a thing well begun is half done, yet it is certain that we have yet much to do before the people of our State will have the benefits of a State homoeopathic insane asylum. We have made friends at court; but it is now essential that we present a well - devised plan by which we can combine the advantages of homoeopathic treatment with all the most advanced ideas regarding the care and treatment of the insane. If we can do this, and present it with wisdom, and sustain it by all the force and inﬂuence at our command, there can be no doubt of our complete success in the imme diate future. The times are propitious and it only remains for us to be true to our principles, to be firm in sustaining them on every needed occasion, to use energy and self-sacri noe in support of all our institutions, and we shall soon find opposition and prejudice will give way before the truth of our principles.
