Thanks for the reply. I don't have the book with me right now, but I seem to remember it being a medical book of sorts. Frederick was a farmer, but was also sort of a "healer". His books often contain some not so conventional remedies. One example is a cure for cancer that contains horse manure. Quite funny. When I get home today, I'll photograph the front cover and post it here for the title.
Thank you very, very much for your help,
