The Quack's Farthing





Quackery, Medical Treatment, Crime, Commerce

    Anticipates with much relish the 'fear and fury' that quacks will feel when they read news of the 'award of a British Jury' in favour of a victim of quackery. Relates that quacks had previously managed to sway juries in their favour in cases concerning newspaper attacks on their trade, but stresses that now the quack will 'sue in vain' and must either 'bear the lash, or lose his cash, / For his lawyer's bootless trouble'.
