Punch, 18 (1850), 199.
The Sanitary Reformer to His Executor
Sanitation, Public Health, Disease, Physiological Chemistry
Instructs his executor to bury him far from churchyards near 'a narrow and crowded site' and to let him decompose far from 'living men's habitations'. Wants none of his 'chemical emanations' to 'injure a soul or offend a nose', but requests 'freshly smelling' flowers to adorn his tomb.
