Title

A letter from a male physician in the country, to the author of the female physician in London

Description

A letter from a male physician in the country, to the author of the female physician in London : plainly shewing that for ingenuity, probity, and extraordinary productions, he far surpasses the author of the narrative. To which is added, a short dissertation upon generation, whereby every child-bearing woman may be satisfied, that 'tis as impossible for women to generate and bring forth rabbets, as 'tis impossible for rabbets to bring forth women.

"On the case of Mary Toft, who allegedly gave birth to seventeen rabbits, and on Nathaniel St. Andre, who wrote 'A short narrative of an extraordinary delivery of rabbets'."
