TitleMedical examination
DescriptionFrom text: "Putting on a pair of carpet slippers, and arrayed in that informal fashion which prevailed in Eden before the fall, he presents himself to the skilled and keen discernment of the examining physician. This disciple of Galen having found the facts of the lodger's physical condition, writes them upon the same record card that holds his story given at the desk below. He is now recorded beyond the possible success of "fake" excuses in an attempt to evade his reasonable stint of labor on the morrow. The physical examination finished, our lodger dons a clean night robe, and, going up another flight of stairs, finds himself in a large dormitory."
