  • "From the anatomist they went on to those who supplied anatomists with what Blaine pleasantly described as their raw material: resurrection men, hangman's assistants, Thames watermen. 'There are also those who are on what is called the smothering-lay, men who entice benighted youths or countrymen who have had their pockets picked to a kipping-ken, and when they are asleep, lay another mattress on them and lie upon it themselves, two or three together.'"
