to .give all that were asked for. Father and mother talked the matter over many times, and at last they decided to have a lot put up in boxes, and let people pay for them. The demand continued to increase, and finally father commenced selling them by travelling through Vermont and New Hampshire. He sold them in this way for eighteen or twenty years, until his death. After his death, his wife continued to make the pills, with the assistance of her son-in-law. She would never show the recipe to any one, not even to him, although he manufactured the pills under her direction. When she had told him what ingredients to use, she would put the drawer back, lock it carefully, and return the key to her pocket. At her death, the original recipe was given to this son-in-law, who, being engaged in other business, and finding more people wanted them than he was able to supply, applied to the well-known firm of Wells, Richardson & Co., who, after investigating the matter carefully, and being convinced that the pills were a remedy of great value, consented to undertake their manufacture. The bottom of the bureau drawer was cut out, in order to obtain the original recipe, which is now in their possession, still pasted to the board where it was placed forty years ago. The old bureau still remains in Waterbury, where the cut drawer can be seen by any one.
