"My 9-year-old grandson unearthed a small clear intact bottle with wording on it that says: Sample bottle Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root Kidney Remedy. It also has Binghampton, NY on it, and there's a IA on the bottom. He found the bottle near the site of an old general store that used to stand on their property. I would appreciate any info you can give, Thanks!"
