GUEST,Penny S. (elsewhere) Folklore: Treacle mines (125* d) RE: Folklore: Treacle mines 04 Mar 03

I was going to post this in the Gilead thread, but had second thoughts. I really hate to do this - but apparently, in the old Bishop's Bible, an early translation into English, the writers used an earlier English word for a healing material, and wrote " is there no treacle in Gilead". I didn't get this from a joke site, either.

And I'm glad I wasn't misusing English slang!
