Worse still, just as the cure is almost at an end, the doctor vanishes secretly and in great haste to another, more profitable patient in South America. Ferdinand completes the cure according to the directions left by the absent doctor and finally the day arrives for him to remove the bandages and see whether the cure has worked....
