The man asks the doctor, "Do you see Doctor my Dame and I become [sic] to ax your advice—we both of us eat well, and drink well, and sleep well—yet still we be somehow queerish" and the doctor responds, "You eat well—you drink well and you sleep well—very good— You was perfectly right in coming to me, for depend upon it I will give you something that shall do away all these things."
