A man from Wapping in the county of Greater London, known to be a physician, who gives evidence that Lady Powell's sickness and death was due to "Dropsie, the Scurvey, and the yellow Jaundies" and therefore altogether natural. Together with fellow surgeon Mr. Page, and examining physicians Dr. Colladen, Dr. Goddard, Dr. Chabrey and Dr. Bates, he "wondered how she was able to live so long, having most of those diseases growing on her for many years before."
