" We might need this information for the coming unpleasantness as much as our ancestors needed it in the last unpleasantness."
Added to my Amazon wishlist. Saves on printer ink and paper.
Not an inexpensive book by any means. Printing using a laser duplex would be a good deal.
A Virginia ancestor of mine was a "Thomassonian" doctor who made all of his medicines from naturally occurring materials, mostly roots and herbs, and was beloved because he would go to the home and stay with the sick person. My recent three day hospital stay at a billing of 40,000 bucks to Medicare shows many doctors charging to my care, none of whom ever laid eyes on me. I doubt that Obamacare can make things any worse than they are getting to be anyway. I fully intend to never occupy a hospital bed again.I shall read all 400 pages of this document with great interest in honor of a past father of mine, Dr. Joseph Boswell, Jr. who was born at Boswell Hill, Mecklenburg County, VA in 1823 and died in 1899.
he would go to the home and stay with the sick person. Most interesting.
