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.
