Vendors Antonette Matteson, Nellie Whitcomb

Mrs. J.H.R. Matteson's Psychic Clairvoyant Remedies were a selection of herbal mixtures offered by Spiritualist medium Antonette Matteson to patients who sought out her trance diagnosis of their maladies. Each mixture was said to be an Indian medicinal formula, made only of natural botanical substances, whose formulas were revealed to her by her spirit guides (specifically Quid Mohegan) while in the trance.

Following Matteson's retirement from the trade, her daughter, Nellie Whitcomb, carried on the business for some years.
