    Discusses an advertisement in The Times for a medical officer to the Honiton Poor Law Union, a position paying the meagre salary of £9 per annum. Suggests several reasons for the smallness of this salary, including the argument that the poor-law guardians wish to treat their medical officer as one of the pauper inmates.
