Pocket Spittoons and Pasteboard Cuspidors, 1909

In Uncategorized on November 6, 2011 at 1:48 pm

“When you cannot conveniently get at the stationary cuspidor, use a pocket spittoon. When away from home, or if the use of such a pocket flask or spittoon is not practicable, use squares of muslin simulating handkerchiefs or use Japanese paper handkerchiefs to expectorate in. Keep them in a leather pouch or in a pocket line with impermeable material until you can burn them on your return home. Ladies should divide their handbags into two compartments to serve the same purpose.”

from Tuberculosis, A Treatise by American Authors. . . edited by Arnold C. Klebs, MD, page 815, 1909
