Beatrice “She’s just come over from England, Papa. I’ll introduce you to her as soon as the Game’s over!”

Francisco Salva Campillo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francisco_Salva_Campillo

(In the year 1795)“… the Catalan scientist Don Francisco Salva i Campillo… making use of a separate wire for each letter of the alphabet, he suggested perhaps doing without electroscopes and using people instead.

Besides being a scientist, Campillo was a physician and was considered a medical prodigy. Can we imagine that he enjoyed leeching and bleeding his patients?
