To make fine Imperial Water.
Take an ounce of gum arabic, the same quantity. of frankincense, mastick, and benjamin, which you must dissolve in five pints of French brandy; put to it four grains of musk, two ounces of the kernels of pine apples, the same quantity of sweet almonds, half an ounce of cloves, and as much nutmeg grated small; when all these are beaten and mixed together, let them be distilled in the brandy over a slow fire, and bottled up for use.
