The Public Physician's Vade-Mecum



Notes, Drollery


Medical Treatment, Medical Practitioners, Commerce, Political Economy, Politics, Health

    Suggests a 'scientific method' of investigating the 'Health of the Public' to the 'political attendant'. Comprises questions about national economics in the style of a doctor's cross-examination of a patient. For example, 'Put out your capital. Let me see your revenue. So, so! How are your Funds? Tolerably firm—eh? In what state are your Consols?'
