Eighteenth-Century Tobacco Advertisement

An eighteenth-century advertisement in an English newspaper extols the virtues of tobacco as a "Potent Herb, and Sweet Repast, Friend to the Thought, and grateful to the Tast." It further promises that "Exhaling healthful Fumes" will help "Clear [the Head] Of noxious Humour, and the Spirits Chear."
