English term or phrase: Patent medicine circulars
¡Buenas noches!

Estoy tratando de traducir esta frase:

It seemed to John that it was day, and that he was looking at some lads sailing above him in the air, showering down tracts and patent medicine circulars, with their messages of hope for despairing, rockbound hamlets.

Pero el término "patent medicine circulars" se me resiste. He pensando en prospectos médicos pero no tiene mucho sentido en este contexto, ya que después se dice que contenían mensajes de esperanza.

Muchas gracias
