shabbat 140

cure for a heavy-heart

& R. Hisdah's advice to poor students to keep body & soul together
and to his daughters, to hide their bodies

(on this page a drink made from fennel water as a cure for a heavy-heart. and R. Hisdah gives advice to be frugal for poor torah students, and to his daughters to be modest and not reveal their bodily functions, and that concealment is more enticing. for english translation of this talmud page, see here)
