FACTS ABOUT FOODS AND THEIR MEDICINAL USES

BY FLORENCE DANIEL

LONDON C. W. DANIEL 11 CURSITOR STREET, E.C. 1908

PREFACE

There is a sentence in the Talmud to the effect that the Kingdom of God is nigh when the teacher gives the name of the author of the information that he is passing on. With every desire to fulfil the rabbinical precept and acknowledge the sources of this booklet, I find myself in a quandary. If I make my acknowledgments duly I must begin with my grandmother and Culpeper's Herbal. Following upon those come the results of my own and friends' practical experience. After this I should, perhaps, give a list of the periodicals from whose pages I have culled much helpful information. But as space and memory preclude individual mention I must content myself with this general acknowledgment. Lastly, I desire to record my thanks to Dr. Fernie, whose Meals Medicinal , a large and exhaustive collection of facts about food, has afforded not the least valuable assistance. F. D.
