About this picture

Description

The sailor says: "You must know doctor I have got a bit of a confusion on my larboard cheek from a chance shot, and as I dont think it of consequence enough for our ships surgeon, I bore down to you, after overhawling a long list of you cures - but I suppose from the messmate in the cabin there; you dont always make a return of the killed and wounded." The quack replies: "Sir, my rule of practice is this, there is pen, ink, and paper, - sign a certificate of your cure, and I'll take you in hand immediatly on paying down two guineas!"
