To prevent the returns of Eruptions by the Scurvy.
Take half an ounce of the roots of jelly-flowers, one ounce of the juice of lemons, a dram of aloes, and two ounces of pellitory-water; when they are all properly mixed, put to them two drams of oil of myrrh; let the whole soke together twenty-four hours, then strain, the liquor through a cloth, set it to cool, and rub the parts offended with it.
