Punch,  31 (1856), 52.

A Question for the Registrar General

Change of Air


Letter, Spoof


Health, Disease, Nutrition

    Suffering from a wide range of common medical ailments, the spoof letter-writer begs Mr Punch to tell him the location of 'those more salubrious spots than Hastings, Brighton, the Isle of Wight, &c. alluded to by the Registrar-General'. Stresses that he wishes to know such locations so that he does not have to renounce the 'delights of the table', a habit which he recognises as a cause of illness.
