Case of Clerical Nervousness



News-Commentary, Drollery


Medical Treatment, Religious Authority, Mental Illness

    Laments the disappearance of a newspaper advertisement announcing that '"a Clergyman of Cambridge University" [...] having cured himself of a nervous disorder', offered to 'cure others'. Suggests that the clergyman in question apply his treatment to a Puseyiste clergyman who, according to the Caernarvon Herald, was preventing communication between children of Anglicans and dissenters. Believes this clergyman is 'very far gone in Puseyism, and ought to have his hair removed in time'.
