Thiamine
"A certain very troublesome affliction, which attacks men,
is called by the inhabitants Beri-beri (which means sheep).
I believe those, whom this same disease attacks,
with their knees shaking and legs raised up, walk like sheep.
It is a kind of paralysis, or rather Tremor:
for it penetrates the motion and sensation
of the hands and feet, indeed sometimes the whole body..."

Jacobus Bonitus, Java, 1630
