Excerpt from A Handbook on Leprosy

This handbook has been prepared in the hope of assisting those who have not had an opportunity of becoming well acquainted with leprosy, in recognising the disease, and appreciating its nature.

The book does not claim to be anything but a practical aid to those in want of assistance.

Many other writers have entered more fully and minutely into the various branches of the subject, but it has been my endeavour to place before my readers, in as concise a form as possible, all that is at present known concerning it. I have consequently purposely refrained from mentioning the various theories that have from time to time gained credence as to the cause of the disease. More especially as it is now almost universally acknow ledged that leprosy is due to the presence in the system of the bacillus leprae. I have for the same reason omitted to discuss the question of heredity, more so as I am aware that there are now very few supporters of this theory as to its causation.
