While this tonic's claim to transform the listless invalid into a vigorous and healthy being might not have been tempered under the Food and Drugs Act, its opium and alcohol would have to be labeled after 1906. Besides manufacturing patented medicines and selling them through mail-orders, Ray Vaughn Pierce was considered a prominent doctor who founded a sanitarium and authored a home-diagnosis manual called, The People's Common Sense Medical Advisor in Plain English; or Medicine Simplified, which sold more than four million copies. He served in the 46th Congress in 1879-1880. His congressional bio says he "engaged in the manufacture and sale of proprietary medicines and established the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute."
