In 1817, the foremost expert on "mental alchemy" was born in Pitt County. This expert was the famous Dr. Williams. Dr. Williams "believed mesmerism could help the recuperative powers of the body." He traveled all around the country giving lectures on such topics as magnetism, electro-psychology, and mesmerism. From these lectures and his practice, he helped several people feel better. In July 1852, he began publishing a monthly journal called "Journal of Organic and Medical Chemistry Designed for the Student, the Physician and People." His death date is unknown.
