Professor Mordecai Erasmus Oglethorpe, 14th day of November 1879, in the company of the troubleshooters:Our most recent incident in which we encountered yet another attack from an unseemingly endless plethora of foes and attackers, I was once again able to put to the test the medicinal and healing properties of Ghost Rock. While my original configuration of the elixir proved to be perhaps too strong for some, particularly those with less hearty constitutions, the addition of bismuth and a small amount of sarsaparilla seemed to be sufficient to sooth the gastrointestinal distress experience by some of my former patients. In addition, I was able to successfully produce a more portable tablet form comprised of the admixture made more palatable with the addition of black strap molasses and cane sugar.
While my fellow troubleshooters are yet reluctant to utilize the medicinal and healing properties of these newly developed medicines, and number of the Hands were more than grateful as they suffered some grievous wounds during the last encounter. It is my hope to continue development along this line of biological research. To this end, I have tasked Socrates with contacting some of my colleagues in order to have some ingredients shipped to Roswell, enabling me to explore other possibilities.
