About this work
Bears dialogue: 'Doctor. "Well, there's only one thing for you to do - you must go yachting for nine months!" Patient. "Oh! That costs so much money - besides I'm a bad sailor - is there no alternative?" Doctor. "Well - yes - by no means an expensive one - nor one that will make you sick! Don't eat so much!" (Patient chooses the yacht.)'
