Calumny on the Clergy



News-Commentary, Drollery


Medical Treatment, Quackery, Religious Authority, Politics

    Discusses an advertisement from an 'M.R.C.S. (1835), and L.A.C. (1834)' who seeks to interest aristocrats and statesmen in his 'Nervo-Arterial Essence' which claims to counteract the nervous strains of 'fashionable and parliamentary life'. Questions why the advertiser offers to supply testimonials from a clergyman who is unlikely to lead such a life.
