To secure Nails that are likely to fall of.
Take a gill of white wine, two drams of powder of acrimony, and the white of an egg, beat them all up together in a morter, then strain the liquid into a wide mouthed bottle where it must stand to settle, then take a linen cloth dipped in this and rub the nails, with that part of the finger above them, and the nails will remain firm.
