Dear Leila,

Greetings from balmy (in more ways than one) East Tennessee. Surfing the web (which is about the only sport I can practice anymore) I stumbled upon your web page. It's got to be the most "deliciuos" page anywhere. I have not had the chance to read all that you have posted, but the bird's eye view I've had has been delightful. Thank you for doing what you do.

Stay well,


I found your web site by seeking information about syrup of figs because I found it requested in a letter that my great-grandmother had written in April 1894 to her aunt. Ten months later she died from consumption. I was wondering if it could have been used as a cough remedy. I would appreciate any information about this item. Thanks. Linda, Claysville , WV
