Experience of the McWilliamses with Membranous Croup

Title

Experience of the McWilliamses with Membranous Croup
Penelope McWilliams develops a cough. Her mother panics because membranous croup is currently ravaging the town. This causes a great deal of pain and aggravation for Mr McWilliams.
 

I had only a single guest, Varooka, during this reading. She's a great fan, however, so I read her this one sketch. This tale is included in the volume Sketches New and Old, published in 1875.
