Medical Practitioners

    Depicts a young doctor standing at the end of a table, around which sit several gentlemen discussing his application to become a parish doctor. The chairman announces that his salary will be £20 and that he will have to find his own 'tea and sugar—medicine I mean'. Punch thinks the applicant will lose his position to a 'humbug, who will fill it for less money'.
