    Medical advice for parents regarding illnesses associated with Christmas and children. For example, warns that 'little boys cannot eat too much at the festive period', and that icing from cakes induces 'indigestion and sickness'. Parents are advised to 'bleed the governors on returning to school' and people with 'delicate lungs' are informed that exposure to cold winds will terminate their complaints.
