    Ridicules an advertisement in the Baptist periodical Earthen Vessel from G Seaborn, a 'Baptist Minister and Medical Botanist', who claims that he can cure diseases by praying to God and then sending medical recipes to sufferers. Thinks readers will deem the claim about prayer to be 'a high joke', and attacks the infelicities in the medical botanist's grammar.
