From Hoolihan's notes on the circa 1861 first edition, quoting Wilson: '...in regard to medical treatment, our race may justly be said to have retrograded rather than improved. The common people have had their minds blurred and biased by technicalities and foreign languages, as well as by imposition, until they have little knowledge of the human organization, and much less of the simple remedies found in the wild garden of Nature, for the curing of disease... However, light is breaking forth, the day begins to dawn. Men are investigating these matters. Reform medical schools are established. Physicians are springing up everywhere... King Calomel is tottering on his throne, and before long will fall, I trust to rise no more'. Wilson is listed as a member of the Eclectic Medical Society of the State of New York...
