About this work
The doctor says: "I declare you are as fat as a porpoise. -Ah! -You would never have been so lusty as this if you had followed my prescription." The patient replies: "I fancy not!! If I had followed that, I should have broke my neck, for I tossed it out of the window."
The doctor and unruly patient. I.C.
