Mr. & Mrs. P. H. Gosse wrote a series of "Gospel Narrative Tracts". "The Good Physician" is # 23. Could be written by Emily Gosse.

That sounds plausible. Her tracts are in the British Library so I hope to scan them next visit.

Emily Gosse as author is still more plausible because Dr Robert Reid Kalley (1809-88) worked in Madeira from 1838-46 and his first wife died in 1851. His second marriage took place in 1852 in Torquay which is immediately adjacent to St Mary Church to which Philip Gosse moved with Emily for the sake of her health. It is more than likely that Dr Kalley's work in Madeira was a familiar topic of conversation in the Torquay area in the 1850s. Timothy Stunt
