Charlotte has misspelt scirrhous. It is a hard slow growing malignant tumour.
One can only assume the presence of a breast tumour would be a death sentence as it would be untreatable at the time.

We have covered the  deadly "benefits" of Hemlock.
At least the Hemlock would be an unpleasant but quicker way of dying.

Tamarindus Indica (Tamarind) is a leguminous tree bearing edible fruit that is indigenous to tropical Africa.
