Scope and Content

Correspondence by Leech in which he relates an incident whereby on his rounds with his Chief of Medicine, a Mr. Joseph Collier, they came across a patient had been convicted of murder partly on the basis of evidence given by Mr. Collier. The patient had recently been released from prison and now needed to be operated on by Collier. The patient refused any chloroform for the operation as he "had put up with the hell of prison for fifteen years he could stand any pain." The patient died two days later. Not Sourced, rpob. Manchester Guardian., 18th December 1922.
