Well, for the past week I've been suffering from a sore throat and a really bad cough and I've found nothing that will soothe or shift it. And all the time the answer was obvious - I should have taken up smoking! These Craven As were made specially to prevent sore throats, apparently. I must rush out and buy a box at once - if I'm quick I'll also get this handy quill and ink set so I can write out my will at the same time. (From the December 1927 Strand Magazine).
