Logan was elected one of the Surgeons to the Leeds Infirmary , where he became the colleague of that eminent and excellent man , the late William Hey , Esq ., F . R . S ., who may be called the founder of that institution ; bat it was owing to the united talent and exertion of these two men that it became so
celebrated and so extensively useful . Mr . Logan married Mary , the daughter of Hat ton Woirich , Esq ., of Leeds , in 1791 , who survives him ; a connexion which continued in uninterrupted happiness , except from his ill-health , which she , by unwearied attention and sympathy , contributed to mitigate , and rendered a life of suffering even a life of enjoyment . He continued in the active
pursuit of his profession till the year 1813 , when , in consequence of increasing bad health , he was compelled , to withdraw from it . He then removed to Seacroft , about four miles from Leeds , took out his diploma and practised , occasionally as a consulting physician ; but even that was prevented by his sufferings , which he endured about fifteen years , baffling the knowledge and experience of himself and the most able medical men both in
