Лондонский лекарь 17 в., доктор Тафтс,

боролся с конкурентами новым способом. В своих листовках он объявлял, что за сорок лет ученых занятий открыл несколько неизвестных прежде болезней, от которых, хотя остальному миру они еще неизвестны, он обладает безотказными снадобьями.

"after forty years study, he hath discovered Several strange Diseases, for which (though as yet not known to the world) he hath infallible cures.
Now the names of these new Distempers are :
THE STRONG FIVES, THE MOON PALL, THE MARTHAMBLES, AND THE HOCOGROCLE.
Although the Names, Natures, Symptoms and several cures of these New Diseases are altogether Unknown to our greatest Physitians, and the particular knowledge of them would (if conceal'd) be a vast advantage to the aforesaid person ; yet he, well knowing that his country's good is to be prefer'd to his private interest, doth hereby promise all sorts of People, a faithful cure of all or any of the Diseases aforesaid, at as Reasonable Rates as our modern Doctors have for that of any common Distemper."
