Great text! I would guess from context that "Playsick" was actually Physick in the original, and that a scanner reader error changed the "h" into "la." "Physick and Chirurgery" sounds better, no?

Now I must be off to gratifie my fancie, perhaps with some Austen (though, on your advice, not with Austen's tea cakes).

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks Teri!

About Chris Stewart

  • Bio
    I'm program director for literary arts for my state arts council. I direct the state Poetry Out Loud program for the NEA. I have degrees. I teach writing. I've published my work. I write novels, poetry, and plays. I love chocolate, am talkative, a realist and idealist, prefer flannel to silk, am a real blonde, and consider books my life - reading them, writing them, smelling them, tasting them (yeah, I've licked a page or two in my time. Who hasn't?).
