The Students' Gratitude to Graham



Reportage, Spoof


Medical Practitioners, Medical Treatment, Charlatanry, Education, Anatomy

    Reports on a meeting of medical students for thanking the Home Secretary James R G Graham for his medical reform bill. Much of the report is devoted to the speech of a 'young gentlemen in a Tweed wrapper' who analyses his disappointing examination performance and hopes that Graham's bill will 'settle' his brutal examiners, and put an end to the Apothecaries' Hall and to 'grinding'. This is followed by others praising Graham and discussing the use of such subjects as anatomy and Latin to the medical practitioner.
