Description

The doctor says: "Your pulse is in a better state, seven or eight more draughts will settle you", the patient replies: "Settle me! Egoles I beleive I shall be settled if I go on in this manner -my inside is like a potticary's shop, I long hugely for some beans & a lump of bacon". The shelf behind contains a large assortment of draughts and pills.
