DR. ABERNETHY, the celebrated physician, was never more displeased than
by hearing a patient detail a long account of troubles. A woman, knowing
Abernethy's love of the laconic, having burned her hand, called at his
house. Showing him her hand, she said, A burn.--A poultice, quietly
answered the learned doctor. The next day she returned, and said,
Better.--Continue the poultice, replied Dr. A. In a week she made
her last call and her speech was lengthened to three words, Well,--your
fee?--Nothing, said the physician; you are the most sensible woman I
ever saw.
