[John Henry Smith]

Bro. Lambert and myself visited the Anatomical Museum of Liverpool. It shows the effects of vanerial diseases upon the parents also upon children born of diseased parents. It also shows the frightfull effects of masterbation on both men and women. ... The bad effects of tight lacing was also shown. We saw the Florantine model of Louisse Lateau, born in Belgium. She bleeds from the same parts of the body our saviour did.
