Bell practiced at 17 William Street, London,

In 1858, Bell was joined in consultation by an allopath Dr. Fergusson (alongside Frederick Foster Hervey Quin), much to the consternation of __The Lancet *(Anon, *The Lancet, (J. Onwhyn, 1858). Page 367. See also Anon, Medical Times and Gazette, Volume 16, (Churchill, London, 1858). Page 435 - and note the omissions made by The Lancet to this letter!  It is fascinating to note that The Lancet_ redacted any mention of Frederick Foster Hervey Quin from their version of this letter, no doubt his name was far too influential for them to mention!),_

Bell submitted cases and articles to various homeopathic publications,
