Scicurious reports on an overdramatic rattlesnake bite! (1747)

While researching my Franklin posts, I happened upon a very entertaining paper from 1747, in which a man describes in excessively melodramatic detail the effects of a rattlesnake bite upon himself.  In the spirit of interblog cooperation, I passed the paper along to Scicurious of Neurotic Physiology, who haf written an entertaining poft about the fubject!  It’s well worth checking out; I especially like the part in which I am called “handsome”! 🙂
