Reports on a fictional meeting of medical students at an unnamed hospital to express thanks to Punch, apparently for its campaign against the imminent Medical Reform Bill. Mr Davis, for example, called for 'unanimity in the present state of the profession' and applauded Punch's 'exhilarating efforts', while Mr Brown warned of the attack on the old profession of medicine by quack 'vultures', and appreciated Punch's assistance.
