Sometimes I'm convinced we require a bilingual dictionary Found in an 1864 cook book by " An American Lady " this hysterically named bread made with brown flour ( i.e. their version of unbleached meaning entire tree limbs inclusive of acorns went into it- chewy stuff! ) is- swear to goodness - called ' Dyspepsia Bread '.
Dyspepsia is a few things, one being indigestion. You could see that, some flour containing less-than-throughly-milled flour could be rough on your stomach. ? " Dyspepsia- A condition characterized by discomfort to the upper abdomen ". The other definitions? " Bad mood, annoyance, irritation, vexation, exasperation, indignation, huff, moodiness, pet, pique, displeasure, anger, fury, rage, crossness..... "
So bread that will outrage your stomach? Obviously there's another explanation- hence why we require " !860-Speak, A Bilingual Guide For 2019 ", published by Civil War and Talk, 2019, all rights reserved.
Then throw it at someone in a fit of pique?
Camp, Commissary Cox's bread and a LOT it. If dyspeptic bread could explain the whole war.
