[William M Thackeray]


Novel, Serial


Medical Practitioners, Class

    Mr Drencher, a 'neat and trim general practitioner' who attends the workhouse as well as rich private patients, is jealous and suspicious of the aristocratic and dandified Charles Batchelor, who reports that the 'serpents of that miserable Æsculapius unwound themselves from his rod, and were gnawing at his swollen heart!' (343).
