Pow-Wows, or Long Lost Friend, by John George Hoffman, , at sacred-texts.com
A VERY GOOD REMEDY FOR THE COLIC.
Take half a gill of good rye whiskey, and a pipe full of tobacco; put the whiskey in a bottle, then smoke the tobacco and blow the smoke into the bottle, shake it well and drink it. This has cured the author of this book and many others. Or, take a white clay pipe which has turned blackish from smoking, pound it to a fine powder, and take it. This will have the same effect.
