Kidney-Wort medicine in
"Cousin John's Extravagant Wife"
Inside front cover and page 1
The mildly funny story tells how after initially criticizing Cousin
John's wife, the relatives realize that she deserves instead respect, having
dyed her clothes and furnishings rather than buying new, expensive items.
