About this work
One of the doctors says: "We must throw in the bark."; another replies: "It is all brought on by drinking"; another doctor agrees: "What you say is very true"; the fourth doctor says: "We must abate the thirst and then cure the fever". Sir Toby Bumper retorts: "Aye aye I hear you but I'll tell you how to save half the trouble cure the fever, & send me a nice cool tankard of madeira and I'll abate the thirst myself."
