Chillingworth had learned much about herbs and roots when he was imprisoned by native Indians,

"as elaborately compounded as if the proposed result had been the Elixir of Life. In his Indian captivity, moreover, he had gained much knowledge of the properties of native herbs and roots..."

from the American Indians
