PLANT CUREALLS

MR. LEHR WAS OUT HUNTING ON HARSEN'S ISLAND. HE MET AN INDIAN WHO
TOLD HIM ABOUT A WONDERFUL CURE FOR ALL TYPES OF DISEASES, PARALYSIS,
ETC. THE INDIAN GAVE HIM SOME SMALL CLEAR CAPSULES. THE CAPSULES
SMELLED LIKE THE SAP FROM BALSAM TREES. BOTH HE AND I TOOK A CAPSULE
AND WE BOTH BURPED BALSAM TREE SMELL FOR TWO DAYS. NEEDLESS TO SAY
THE REST OF THE PILLS STILL REMAIN IN HIS DRESSER DRAWER.
