To take Spots out of the Nails.
Take two drams of Venice turpentine with one dram of myrrh, mix them together over a slow fire in an earthen vessel; then set it to cool, when you must spread a small piece upon leather, and keep it all night upon your nails. Do it three nights successively, and the spots will disappear.
