Modern Medicine

"Nancy Linton: A faithful representation of her actual appearance and condition after having been cured by the use of Swann's Panacea", c. 1833. I think this may have been meant as critique of cure-alls and of general medical quackery.

"Singular Effects of the Universal Vegetable Pills on a Green Crocer! A Fact!", 1841
