- Before doctors became skilled in making the different kinds of medicine, people had their own cures for sickness. One of these cures was for a person with the whooping-cough.This cure was to give a donkey bread to eat. While the donkey was eating the bread the person with the cough crept under the donkey's body three times.Then the crumbs which fell from the donkey's mouth were gathered and boiled on fresh milk. The person with the cough drank this as a medicine.Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
