This is an inventory or return of hospital supplies for the hospital at Fort Mifflin, on the Delaware River at Philadelphia. Mezereon is a deciduous shrub that can be poisonous. It appears to have been used to treat tooth aches and skin disorders, and possibly as a compress. Tartar and castor oil could have been used as laxatives. Guaiacum resin could have been used to treat coughs, arthritis, and possibly syphilis. Other items include a pestle, an ointment spatula, and a funnel. The return is signed by a surgeon’s mate of the 2nd Regiment of Artillerists and Engineers. It is verified by Doctors Gillaspy and Strong.
