Physical description

1 print : lithograph, with watercolour ; sheet 13.3 x 10.6 cm


A neighbouring tradesman having learned from his friend Bottles the chemist that I had put myself under a regular course of medical treatment loses no time in presenting his card. By the bye, Mr Sadd is the same gentleman who proposed getting up an anti-Morison demonstration, he says that he considers Morison's pills are a most unjustifiable interference with the vested rights of undertakers.
