Synopsis

From the book:In the year 1860, the reputation of Doctor Wybrow as a London physician reached its highest point.

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. 'Who is she?' the Doctor asked. 'A stranger?'
