The Awkward Confession
Medical Practitioners, Commerce
A poetic tale of a woman with a 'doctor' who, once called in, was reluctant to discharge his patient: 'But medical gents, Sir, as well you and I know, / Can't hastily leave, when there's plenty of rhino; / While the purse is in health the disorder is slow, / The lighter your pocket the sooner they go'.
