'Which of You has Done This?'
Quackery, Periodicals, Medical Treatment, Charlatanry, Patronage
Discusses an advertisement in The Times from an Hungarian baron who seeks a cure for lumbago, an advertisement that Punch speculates was written by a quack. Accordingly, anticipates that there will shortly appear another advertisement from the baron upholding a quack remedy as the solution to his problem. Concludes by warning, 'We shall look out for you, Quack, whoever you are'.
