    Agrees with the proposal to erect a monument of James Morison and supports this view with arguments that play on words associated with his medical trade. For instance, a monument should be erected 'Because Morison was one of the most remarkable pillers of society'. Suggests, by means of an illustration, that it should consist of a brass head stone resting on a brass disk marked '13 1/2 d'—possibly the cost of one of his celebrated pills.
