WM0 SHE WAS
SKETCH OF THE LIFE
And a True Story of How the Vegetable Compound
Had Its Birth and How the "Panic of 73,f Caused
it to be Offered for Public Sale in Drug Stores.
This rema.rka.ble woman, whose
maiden name was Estes, was born in
Lynn, Mass., February 8th, 1819, com
ing' from a good old Quaker family.
For some years she taught school, and
became known as a woman of an alert
and investigating mind, an earnest
6eeker after knowledge, and above
all, possessed of a wonderfully sympa
In 1843 she married Isaac Pinkham,
a builder and real estate operator, and
their early married life was marked by
prosperity and happiness. They had
four children, three sons ana a
In those good old fashioned days it
was common for mothers to make
their own home medicines from roots
and herbs, nature's own remedies
calling in a physician only in specially
urgent cases. By tradition and ex
perience many of them gained a won
derful knowledge of the curative prop
erties of the various roots and herbs.
Mrs. Pinkham took a great interest
in the study of roots and herbs, their
characteristics and power over disease.
She maintained that just as nature so
bountifully provides in the harvest-
fields and orchards vegetable foods of
all kinds ; so, if we but take the pains
to find them, in the roots and herbs
of the field there are remedies ex
pressly designed to cure the various
ills and weaknesses of the body, and
it was her pleasure to search these out,
and prepare simple and effective medi
cines for her own family and friends.
Chief of these was a rare combina
tion of the choicest medicinal roots
and herbs found best adapted for the
cure of the ills and weaknesses pecu
liar to the female sex, and Iiydia E. Pink
ham's friends and neighbors learned
that her compound relieved and cured
and it became quite popular among
All this so far was done freely, with
out money and without price, as a
labor of love.
But in 1873 the financial crisis struck
Lynn. Its length and severity were too
much for the large real estate interests
of the Pinkham family, as this class
of business suffered most from
fearful depression, so when the Centen
nial year dawned it found their prop
erty swept away. Some other source
of income had to be found.
At this point Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound was made known
to the world.

restore the family fortune. They
argued that the medicine which was
so good for their woman friends and
neighbors was equally good for the
women of tbe whole world.
The Pinkbams had no money, and
little credit. Their first laboratory
was the kitchen, where roots and
herbs were steeped on the stove,
gradually filling a gross of bottles.
Then came tbe question of selling
it, for always before they had given
it away freely. They hired a job
printer to run off some pamphlets
setting forth the merits of the medi
cine, now called Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, and these were
distributed by the Pinkham sons in
Boston. New York, and Brooklyn.
The wonderful curative properties of
the medicine were, to a great extent,
self-advertising, for whoever used it
recommended it to others, and the de
mand gradually increased.
In 1877, by combined efforts the fam
ily had saved enough money to com
mence newspaper advertising and from
that time the growth and success of
the enterprise were assured, until to
day Lydia E. Pinkham and her Vege
table Compound nave Decome House
hold words everywhere, and many
tons of roots and herbs are used annu
