Bump! thx !
Downstairs, the doctor left three different medicines in different colored capsules with instructions for giving them . One was to bring down the fever, another a purgative, , the third to overcome an acid condition. The germs of influenza can only exist in an acid condition , he explained . He seemed to know all about influenza and said there was nothing to worry about if the fever did not go above one hundred and four degrees . This was a light epidemic of flu and there was no danger if you avoided pneumonia .
