To make the Forehead appear extremely Beautiful, and enaging.

Take an ounce of mastick, and dissolve it to a jelly in half a pint of piony-water, take it out, and spread a piece of it on leather, lay it on the forehead, with a ribbon tied to it to keep it tight; this must be done when you go to bed, let it be pulled off in the morning as quick as possible, and the scattered hairs will come, up by the roots, so that in a few days the forehead will appear very comely.
