Brown: 'Hampstead salubrious? I believe you, my boy! Why, I came here three months ago a perfect wreck from dyspepsia, and now, I'm blessed if I can't eat the whole of a three-and-sixpenny lobster for supper, and wake up next day without thinking unkind things of anyone, not even my wife's relations!!!'
George Du Maurier (1834-1896)
