Medical Treatment, Medical Practitioners, Status
The valetudinarian and ill-tempered Lord De Courcy is such objectionable company that his wife asks their daughter Margaretta, 'Don't you wish we could get Sir Omicron to order him to the German spas?', at which the narrator comments, 'Now Sir Omicron was the great London physician, and might, no doubt, do much in that way' (669).
