    Observes some 'striking' parallels between Thomas Holloway, a manufacturer of patent pills, and the Prime Minister Robert Peel. For example, compares Peel's 'tax' to Holloway's 'pill', Peel's 'Tariff' to Holloway's 'Ointment', and suggests that the relationship between a 'Quack' and an 'Empiric' corresponds to that between Holloway and Peel.
