From the Wisconsin Herald and Grant County Advertiser :"When Illinois caught Mormonism off Missouri, she caught something worse than the X. Job sitting in the ashes and scratching himself amongst the potsherds, was infinitely more comfortable than poor Illinois now is, burning and festering under the scab of Mormonism."The condition, which was bacterial in nature - causing highly irritating red pimples on the face and body, is now so easily treated as to have been virtually forgotten.

The Seven-Year Itch

3. In architecture, X is a carved stone grotesque with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building. The term originates from a French word meaning "throat" or "gullet“. A local legend that sprang up around the name of St. Romanus ("Romain") (AD 631–641), the former chancellor of the Merovingian king Clotaire II who was made bishop of Rouen, relates how he delivered the country around Rouen from a monster called X, having the creature captured by the only volunteer, a condemned man. The X’s grotesque form was said to scare off evil spirits so they were used for protection. Many medieval cathedrals included X and chimeras. Although most have grotesque features, the term X has come to include all types of images. Some X were depicted as monks, combinations of real animals and people, many of which were humorous?

Remember that I speak not only as one comrade to another, but as a medical man to one for whose constitution he is to some extent answerable”. -Who is speaking, to whom/about what?
