act greater a profit viz: to the author of the nuisance more than equivalent to the sum of the
pains the production of which is another consequence

The evil that accrues to persons of the latter class, the
evil is organical pain: in but this organical
may be attended with a consequential evil: with
pains of privation. A housekeeper who suffers in
his own person, by reason of a nuisance, may besides that be a sufferer in his
fortune by reason of the same nuisance. He
may lose the benefit of taking in lodgers, or he may
find it impracticable to get servants without giving
them higher wages than they would demand otherwise.

and Death by Poison. Let Dissection
follow the Poisonous Death. This will be of use
in a medical view.

When the Punishment of Death is inflicted by Poison, the choice of
the poison may be left to the King's Surgeon:
or Master of the company of Surgeons for the purpose of trying experiments: provided
that if the Patient does not dies not within
a certain time by virtue of the poison first
given administer'd, he should at the end of that time a poison
should be administer'd of such a nature as is
known to kill certainly and instantaneously.
