The Candle And Lantern
DURING the period Sir Busick Harwood was Professor of Anatomy in the
University of Cambridge, he was called in, in a case of some
difficulty, by the friends of a patient, who were anxious for his
opinion of the malady. Being told the name of the medical man who had
previously prescribed, Sir Busick exclaimed, He! if he were to descend
into the patient's stomach with a candle and lantern, when he ascended
he would not be able to name the complaint.
