    Responding to the proposed marriage of Miss Dunstable and 'the "Greshambury apothecary"' Dr. Thorne, Dr. Filligrave, the 'eminent physician of Barchester', comments bitterly, 'He has been little better than a quack all his life [...] and now he is going to marry a quack's daughter'. Miss Dunstable's patronage of Mr. Sowerby in the electoral contest for West Barchester prompts considerations among the populace as to 'whether the county would not be indelibly disgraced if it were not only handed over to a woman, but handed over to a woman who sold the oil of Lebanon'. (486)
