Porter on Political Atoms



News-Commentary, Drollery


Matter Theory, Homeopathy, Politics

    Discusses Whitworth Porter's claim that Lord John Russell's Reform Bill was 'an atom of a bill from an atom of a statesman' which could open the 'flood-gates' of franchise reform. Questioning how an atom could open flood-gates, Punch wonders if Porter is a 'disciple' of the homeopath Christian F Hahnemann.
