"In the year 1860, the reputation of Doctor Wybrow as a London physician
reached its highest point. It was reported on good authority that he was in
receipt of one of the largest incomes derived from the practice of medicine in
One afternoon, towards the close of the London season, the Doctor had
just taken his luncheon after a specially hard morning's work in his
consulting-room, and with a formidable list of visits to patients at their own
houses to fill up the rest of his day-- when the servant announced that a lady
wished to speak to him."
