    Shows John Bright (the 'Doctor') as a somewhat pompous looking doctor standing near, and in conversation with, a rough-looking carpenter (the 'Patient') carrying the tools of his trade. The doctor quizzes the patient about his livelihood and on hearing that he earns enough money and food, and is not 'hurt' by the taxes, replies that 'we must change all that. We must go in for reform'. This latter refers to Bright's zealous campaign for parliamentary reform.
