(Added 28 November 2007)

“puff”, Meredith Carruthers & Susannah Wesley, 2007

Sat. 21st 1792—I read of “a leaf imported from Botany Bay, which when dried goes off by the application of a match with an explosion of gunpowder, and the air is agreeably perfumed”. -An excerpt from The Diary of Mrs. John Graves Simcoe Wife of the Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Upper Canada, 1792-1796
