      HOW TO CATCH AND HOW TO CURE A COLD
      At this time of the year colds are easily caught, and difficult to
      cure. The following will be found effectual: - After a quick walk in the
      evening, sit in the draft to cool; the consequence will be a severe cold,
      attended with cough; the next day hoarseness, short breath, and much
      expectoration; in the evening, at seven, go to a well-frequented tavern, and
      drink three or four glasses of strong punch, or stiff rum and water; stay
      till eleven, walk home cosey, and go to bed; you need not get up the next
      day, but send for the apothecary, the following day for the physician, and
      the third day your friends will send for the undertaker. You will never feel
      the effects of an autumnal cold afterwards.
