Introduction: The letters of Dr. Jonathan Pereira, physician at the London Hospital, to Mr. Jacob Bell, leader of the chemists and druggists, inform us of the subjects, events, and problems that occupied the two men during nine formative years of the Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. They establish Pereira’s relationship with Bell and his influence on the character and policy of the Pharmaceutical Journal, which was a major instrument in Bell’s efforts to confer professional status on the calling of the “chemist and druggist” as a practitioner of pharmacy.
