    Having urged his 'staunch Assistant' to 'prepare to Pound' drugs, the narrator observes that he and his fellow surgeons can exploit the boom in the number of illnesses caused by the gluttony of the Christmas period. Gives precise details of the treatments for specific complaints and urges his assistant to make ready his other surgical and pharmaceutical resources.
