Excerpt

in a general run-down condition. I could not sleep, rest or work, and was quite unfit to do even light household tasks. A friend told me about your Vegetable Compound and I in my turn truly recommend it, as my severe symptoms vanished and I am better in every way. I do my own work, look after my children and see to chickens, a cow, and my garden. I also recommend it for young girls who are weak and rundown, as my 16-year-old daughter has taken it and is quite her own gay self again."
MRS. FRED. WILEY,

This little book was published by or for the manufacturers of the famous old-time "female tonic," Lydia Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. The booklet has plain-cooking type recipes, interspersed among a lot of "testimonial" letters. You laugh at the cheery language in those letters when you realize in the early years at least, the medicine contained alcohol (not sure how much, maybe 20%? at one point. I'm sure it was just to "preserve the other ingredients."). Last time I saw it in a drug store, about 20 years ago, it said on the box NO ALCOHOL in about 4 places. An interesting glance at days gone by.
