The GIV-34 Masonic Arch – Frigate Franklin Flask

In 1807, Dyott opened a drugstore, added “M.D.” to his name, and soon became the largest dealer of what he called ‘Family Medicines’ in the country. Among his better-selling products were his Dyott’s Infallible Worm Destroying Lozenges and Vegetable Nervous Cordial. Advertising said he was the grandson of the late celebrated Dr. Robertson of Edinburgh. He sold his medicines wholesale and retail at the proprietor’s Medical Dispensary, No. 116 North Second-Street, “second door above Race-Street, Philadelphia, and by retail, of the agents in every principal town in the United States.” By 1819, Dyott had grown into the largest patent medicine supplier in the country.
