Huckleberry Finn
Huckleberry Finn

The Explanatory Notes to this edition of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn include the following prescription for snakebite, quoted from the 1867 Gunn's New Family Physician:

"Internally, give the patient all the Whisky he can drink. From a quart to a gallon should be drunk in six or eight hours. No fears need be entertained of making the patient drunk. You may fill him with Whisky, then let him swim in it, and it will not make him drunk, so long as the poison of the snake remains in the system....It is a complete antidote for Snakebite, if taken freely, and may be relied on in any and all cases. It should be drunk like water for a few hours, and continued, at short intervals, until the patient gives signs of intoxication, when the quantity should gradually be diminished as the disease is beginning to recede. Keep him "under the influence of liquor," however, until you are sure he is out of danger."
