About this work
The man followed by his anxious looking wife says: " Do you see doctor my dame and I become to ax your advice- we both of us eat well and drink well, and sleep well- and still we be somehow queerish." The doctor with his back to the fireplace (a bust of Galen is on the mantlepiece) replies: "You eat well- you drink well and you sleep well- very good.--- You was perfectly right in coming to me, for depend upon it I will give you something that shall do away all these things."
