About this work
Identified by Rachman with Parker's case no. 5721: "... About the 10th January the patient was told that she might go home whenever she pleased, but she preferred remaining still longer where everything was provided for her. On the 19th January, the husband having returned for her, she was discharged in excellent spirits, and both were very thankful. The action of the liver had been excited, her skin has become soft and natural, and the prospect is that she may live for years, and enjoy good health. The opportunity was improved in impressing upon them their obligations to the living God, and author of all their mercies." The Yale website says "figure (probably male) covering face with left hand, right hand disfigured"
