Potter, for 48 years Harvard University's librarian. Wrote Dr. Barslay: "It (tobacco) preserueth from the toothach; it cureth the migraine, the collcke, Bio cough, the cold; it stayeth growing fatle; it Is the antlclotte of Hypochrondrlacke melancholic, It prepareth the stotn- acke for meat; it maketh a clear voice, it innkclh a smet breath it elcnrcth the sight. ...
