About this work
The patient says: "Oh dear doctor that alternative you sent me has almost killed me." The doctor replies: "Very good! Very good! That is what I intended I see the medicine has had its effect if you continue to follow my prescription you will be perfectly free from all complaints in a few days." A bottle labelled "vitriolic acid" is on the table next to the patient
