From an article entitled "Herbs, Salts and Cider", which discussed the life of the late "colored physician", Dr. James N. Gloucester.
Dr. Gloucester had had many predecessors in the art of ministering to a body diseased through the medium of "yarbs," and prominent among them was the famous Dr. Tumblety, who, in the early sixties, had an office and laboratory on Fulton street, near Nassau. Tumblety described himself in those days as the "Indian herb doctor," and by judicious and extensive advertising managed to make a handsome income. He believed in keeping himself constantly before the public in the literal sense of the word, and it was his custom to spend a great portion of each day in promenading up and down Fulton street accompanied by a fine gr[e]yhound. He was of a striking personal appearance and wore long hair and an immense hat. He was last heard of a couple of years ago in New York, where for a time he was under suspicion on account of his supposed connection with the advanced branch of the Irish national party.
