Punch,  63 (1872), 210.

Punch at Lunch  [3/8]



Diary, Spoof, Serial


Force, Lecturing

    Remembers hearing a lecture by Michael Faraday on the 'Conservation of Forces' (possibly a reference to Faraday 1854–58) and boasts that he was 'the only person in the room, except the lecturer, who understood it'. Suggests that somebody should lecture on the 'Conservation of Farces'.
