A Hint for Holloway



Essay, Drollery


Quackery, Medical Treatment

    Suggests an advertisement for Thomas Holloway, who has devised imaginative ways of emphasizing the benefits of his 'Ointment and Pills'. The advertisement describes how a patient, long 'addicted to the follow of taking quack medicines' from which he derived no benefit, tried 'Professor So-and-So's Pills' and recovered his senses so much that he no longer takes quack medicines.
