Punch,  30 (1856), 210.

Ithuriel Hassall



News-Commentary, Drollery


Adulteration, Analytical Chemistry, Heroism

    Reports that Arthur H Hassall, the 'man who has done the best to hunt Death out of the Pot', has received a testimonial from his friends and admirers. The testimonial represents the angel Ithuriel of Christian mythology, the touch of whose spear exposed deceit, and in particular exposed Satan squatting like a toad. Punch observes that Hassall's touch has exposed those who adulterate food and drink, and hopes he will long continue his work. Claims that Punch will subscribe to any testimonial to a senator who makes adulteration a felony.
