Tipot is a mystery man associated with medical matters in papers fom the 17th Century but always as a third party reference. “Tipot says that ….” . But he remains hidden and has no other names that can be found.

Poor Horse!
Msr. Thomas Goulard had quite powerful incentives in his promotion of lead salts as a medicine He was charging customers what in today’s prices, would be about £80, for a gallipot of this poisonous muck. The medical profession such as it stood at the time, were able to ask leading questions about this form of treatment and some were noticing that there were poisoning effects behind the use of lead ointments. One can assume the gullible public were unaware of such bickering behind the scenes and continued to kill themselves and their animals with it.

" Paregoric Exilir". The hunt for more information reveals it is camphorated tincture of opium, also known as tinctura opii camphorata.
