28th January 1933 cont. - a rush for the magic aspirin
I went across to another camp to inspect a woman whom Hezekiel said was very sick. He came to interpret for `the great white doctor'. I took a bottle of aspirin and some iodine. They were my total medicines apart from some potassium permanganate. She seemed to be in the last stages of pulmonary T.B. and she knew as well as I did the value of the aspirin I gave her. There was an immediate rush from all the women for the magic aspirin, and I doled out one each to quite a few. One woman with a very large baby at breast, was obviously pregnant.
