Punch,  59 (1870), 195.

Weeds of the Future



News-Commentary, Drollery


Narcotics, Disease, Death

    Responds to an extract from an 'American journalist' reporting that scientific men have recently discovered that tobacco smoking will cause death in 'one hundred and sixty-seven years'. Thinks this hint is 'premature' and points out that Mr Punch has been smoking for thirty years but has marked in a diary for 2007 his intention to reduce his smoking.
