9 February – Ted to Jane

09 Feb

Feb 9th

Dear Jinny.

Still got an awful cold, & I have eaten or sucked most of the lozenges & jubejubes in the rgt; but I am better, & will soon be as right as rain. So will you please send me 1 bottle formaloids, 1 tin eucalyptus jubejubes or anything good for a cough or cold. You can get them from Boots I think.

Not much going on here. It’s very cold, especially the wind. It rained a bit today too. Hair growing like anything under the new treatment.

Tons of love from Ted

“Regesan Formeloids” have very little info online beyond watermarked adverts from the Singapore Straits Times – this from 18/09/16 (cures consumption)
