He died there in 1900.

Hunter's Pills

Another recipe from the Victorian  White House Cookbook, first published in 1887.   Just so ya know, it's worth ten times the price of the cookbook--whew!


  1. What are hunters pill for?

  2. I assume the last sentence was a sort of code for menstrual problems or constipation associated with a woman's period. Funny, I just tried googling it, and Hesch History is the top reference! LOL
