ginseng trade very profitable. DB had done some business in seng in NC. Mostly shipped to China, but also used by American physicians and apothecaries. Has real medical value [for what?]. Bought from neighbors and gatherers, also gathered himself with family. Winter 1787-88 had some 15 tons; took up river, accident on way; price had fallen by time he got to Philadelphia. Next fall had another "15 caggs of ginsang" on hand. BAKELESS:331
