To make a fine Pomatum for the Skin.
Cut two pounds of hogs lard into thin slices, wash it clean, and let it soak ten days in water, only remember that the water must be as cold as possible; and changed once every day; then melt it over a slow fire, skim off any impurity that rises to the top, when melted pour it into cold water; wash it clean with rose-water, and rub your skin a little with it.
