DR. MEAD, calling one day on a gentleman who had been severely afflicted
with the gout, found, to his surprise, the disease gone, and the patient
rejoicing on his recovery over a bottle of wine. Ah! said the doctor,
shaking his head, this Madeira will never do; it is the cause of all
your suffering.--Well, then, rejoined the gay incurable, fill your
glass, for now we have found out the cause, the sooner we get rid of
it the better.
