To make the Hair of the Eyebrows grow regular.
Take two ounces of linseed-oil, half an ounce of lead filed as small as you can, with a dram of maiden-hair; mix with them, two drams of henbane-seed; beat them up together in a marble morter, then put it up in a vessel and use it in the following manner. Take a small piece of black silk, dip it in the ointment, lay it upon the eyebrows when you, go to bed, and when you take it off in the morning, take some white wine, wherein myrtle-berries have been soaked and wash them.
