SIR RICHARD JEBB being called to see a patient who fancied himself very
ill, told him ingenuously what he thought, and declined prescribing for
him. Now you are here, said the patient, I shall be obliged to you,
Sir Richard, if you will tell me how I must live; what I may eat, and
what I may not.--My directions as to that point, replied Sir Richard,
will be few and simple! You must not eat the poker, shovel, or tongs,
for they are hard of digestion; nor the bellows, because they are
windy; but eat anything else you please!
