"...he was excessively dirty in his person and practice: he carried a considerable territory beneath his nails; smelt equally strongly of the laboratory and the stable; would wipe his hands on his patient's sheets, and wherever he went left horrid marks of his whereabouts; he was very fond of good eating and much drinking, and would neglect the best customer that ever was sick, when tempted by the fascination of a game of loo" - The Kellys and the O'Kellys
