Pow-Wows, or Long Lost Friend, by John George Hoffman, [1820], at

A certain Remedy to stop Bleeding, which cures, no matter how far a person be away, if only his first name is rightly pronounced while using it:

    Jesus Christ dearest blood!
    That stoppeth the pain and stoppeth the blood.
In this help you [first name] God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost. Amen.
