    Reports that John Pringle mentioned in one of his works having cured a soldier by daily use of the 'dog-and-duck water'—that is, the celebrated waters drawn from the medicinal spring at the Dog and Duck tavern on the site later occupied by the Bethlehem Royal Hospital. 'A French physician, who translated this passage of Sir John's, said, that "the cure was effected by administering an excellent broth made of a dog and duck!"'.
