Linda Fry This is an old recipe which was found in an antique book. It was written by a Katie Salmon. The year is unknown, but a newspaper article on the Alaska Gold Rush was found with it. 4 ounces hops 2 ounces Buchu 2 ounces yellow dock root 1 ounce mandrake root (a.k.a. mayapple) 1 ounce burdock seed Mix. Pour in 4 quarts of hot water, let stand overnight; strain. Simmer down to 2 quarts; when cold, add 2 pounds of loaf sugar and 1 pint of whiskey. Dose: 1 tablespoon, 3 times a day before meals. Use an earthen dish to steep in. Found in a modern-day herbal catalog: Buchu may be used in any infection of the genito-urinary system, such as cystitis, urethritis and prostatis. Its healing and soothing properties indicate its use together with other relevant remedies in many conditions of this system, especially useful where dysuria is part of the symptom picture. The oil content may be too irritating for people with a history of major kidney disease.

Linda Fry Some of the people in this photo look very much like members of a Harmon family from Machias, Maine, who are currently living in Wisconsin.
