Serial, Catechism, Drollery
Quackery, Medical Treatment, Medical Practitioners
List of proverbs and maxims that attack quackery and the avarice, fraudulence, and incompetence of medical practitioners. For example, 'Wine "Doctored" is only medicine in disguise' and 'A Doctor knows the human body as a cabman knows a town—he is acquainted with all the great thoroughfares and small turnings, he is intimate with all the principal edifices, but he cannot tell you what is going on inside any one of them'.
