Comment on EARACHE by Gayle.
I actually thought for a couple of minutes this was advice on how to treat this ailment today in the 21st century!! lol. I did find it odd that it was written rather “formally” but when they advised that adults could have laudanum and should take to their beds after taking something to ensure they would have bowel movements I finally caught on!!
It’s no wonder that so many people died at a young age during this era!
