Editor's Note: How sick Nora must have been that both her step-mother and her mother-in-law not to mention her dying sister came to see her and presumably help out?  You know how we tell people not to come into work if they are sick because the office won't fall apart without them for one day?  Well, it seems Nora might be the lynch pin in her "office" because the troops have rallied.

As for Dr. Thomas' Eclectic Oil it was for internal and external use and contained Turpentine.  Mmmm, sounds fortifying, but I'd prefer a Guinness.
