AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The narrator tells of how his alcoholism was 'cured' by observing the eating habits of a travelling teetotaller. The teetotaller had assured him that abstinence from alcohol would improve his constitution. The narrator was convinced by the man's ability to consume old Bullocky Joe's sausages, with 'doggy' dreams being the only consequence.
