|It was not right to give the cat the "Pain-Killer";
I realize it now. I would not repeat it in these days. But in those "Tom
Sawyer" days it was a great and sincere satisfaction to me to see Peter
perform under its influence--and if actions do speak as loud as words, he
took as much interest in it as I did. It was a most detestable medicine,
Perry Davis Pain-Killer. Mr. Pavey's negro man, who was a person of good
judgment and considerable curiosity, wanted to sample it and I let him.
It was his opinion that it was made of hell-fire.
