    Shows an equestrian 'Parish Doctor' who is late for a fox-hunting party. He passes a house in a country lane and sees a woman at an upstairs window. He asks about her daughter and her daughter's baby, who appear to be poorly. Clearly more interested in the hunt than his patients, he simply tells the women to give the baby 'a pinch o' brimstone in his pap'.
