More Recipes From Marie: Tips for Sunburn and Broth for the Sick
These are, I think, pretty readable. I love the plantain leaves tip but am not sure it works to help tetanus as described in the second paragraph. Also I don't know where plantain leaves are in Illinois, but I'm no plant expert.
I think also you could buy some chicken soup rather than boil 'a whole chicken' when you are sick.
These are fabulous - I owe my librarian friend Marie for sending these along.
