Antique Civil War Era Lancet Bloodletting Tool with Case Wiegand & Snowden

A New estate has proved to be an interesting collection of Antique Civil War Era Medical instruments. Included in this collection will be different types of Lancets as well as a fine example of a Civil War Amputation set.
The lancet is marked Wiegand & Snowden and has the storage case. The case is worn and torn in parts.
A small compartment in the case had a small folded paper with "Faccein" (sp?) I am unable to find what this "medicine" was used for, my guess it is some sort of folk lore medicine.

Condition: VG, some wear to the lancet, the case is worn and torn in areas.
