More Happy Thoughts  [29/37]

[Francis C Burnand]


Diary, Spoof, Serial


Health, Medical Treatment

    Describes the narrator's visit to the spa town of Aachen and in particular his tasting of the mineral waters. He likens the latter to the 'water at the Polytechnic [...] after it has been flavoured by an experimental blowing up of the Royal George under water, by the Diving Professor, or some other scientific gentleman connected with the establishment' (35).
