In England they were not generally accepted till adopted with some modifications by Thomas Willis the great anatomist (1621-1675), who is the chief English representative of the chemical school.
In the application of chemistry to the examination of secretions Willis made some important steps.
We thus see that, while the great anatomists, physicists and chemists - men of the type of Willis, Borelli and Boyle - were laying foundations which were later on built up into the fabric of scientific medicine, little good was done by the premature application of their half-understood principles to practice.

As elucidated by Professor Willis,' it exhibits the plan of a great Benedictine monastery in the 12th century, and enables us to compare it with that of the 9th as seen at St Gall.

On receiving Blount's report to the effect that the revolution had been accomplished by the aid of the United States minister and by the landing of troops from the " Boston," President Cleveland sent Albert Sydney Willis (1843-1897) of Kentucky to Honolulu with secret instructions as United States minister.
Willis with much difficulty and delay obtained the queen's promise to grant an amnesty, and made a formal demand on the provisional government for her reinstatement on the 19th of December 1893.
Dole sent a reply to Willis, declining to surrender the authority of the provisional government to the deposed queen.

Robert Willis (1800-1875) has the merit of having been the first to simplify considerably the theory of puie mechanism, by pointing out that that branch of mechanics relates wholly to comparative motions.
But that classification is founded on the absolute instead of the comparative motions of the pieces, and is, for that reason, defective, as Willis pointed out in his admirable treatise On the Principles of Mechanism.
Each of those classes is subdivided by Willis into five divisions, of which the characters are as follows: Division A: Connection by rolling contact.
Nearly Epicycloidal Teeth: Williss Method.To facilitate the drawing of epicycloidal teeth in practice, Willis showed how to approximate to their figure by means of two circular arcsone concave, for the flank, and the other convex, for the faceand each having for its radius the mean radius of curvature of the epicycloidal arc. \Villiss formulae are founded on the following properties of epicycloids Let R be the radius of the pitch-circle; r that of the describing circle; 8 the angle made by the normal TI to the epicycloid at a given point T, with a tangent-to the circle at Ithat is, the obliquity of the action at T.
For the proportions approved of by Willis, sin 0 = 3/4 nearly; r = (the pitch) nearly; c=1/2p nearly; and, if N be the number of teeth in the wheel, r/R =6/N nearly; therefore, approximately, p C=~.
G To facilitate the application of this rule, Willis published tables of pc and pc, and invented an in- FIG.
General Pr-inciples.----Willis designated as aggregate combinations those assemblages of pieces of mechanism in which the motion of one follower is the resultant of component motions impressed on it by more than one driver.
Willis adopts another classification founded on the objects of the combinations, which objects he divides into two classes, viz.
It is seldcm that one of these effects is produced without at the same time producing the other; but the classification of Willis depends upon which of those two effects, even supposing them to occur together, is the practical object of the mechanism.
Epicyclic Trains.The term ep-icyclic train is used by Willis to denote a train of wheels carried by an arm, and having certain rotations relatively to that arm, which itself rotates.
