Notes

  • Described by Miller as 'amusing sketches of two quacks and other "practitioners" in a N.S.W. country town'; includes 'some political references'. (Source: Miller, Australian Literature from its Beginnings to 1935, 1940)

  • Miller states that the original version of this work was printed in the Australian Magazine in 1908.

  • Dedication: To You.
    To you, who love the lighter vein,
    Who scan the joke with laughter free.
    By whom the sad-faced Care is slain
    With mirth thrusts from Life's comedy;

    To you, the gods have blest to view
    This drear old world with hat awry,
    Who see a-grin with humour true,
    The clown on Life's stage whirling by;

    To you, I launch this book, and pray
    The spring from whence your humour flows
    May find a field whereon to spray
    The dews that quench Life's kindling woes.
    'Paul Cupid'
