To make a fine Cordial to prevent the Palpitation of the Heart.
Take eighteen grains of saffron, clipped small, two scruples of cochineal, four ounces of black cherry water; digest the whole together for an hour over a slow fire, in an earthen vessel, then pour upon it a gill of good canary; when you have squeezed the liquor thro' a clean linen cloth, add to it cloves, nutmeg, and oil of cinnamon, each two drops, one yolk of an egg, a dram of the spirit of lavender, half an ounce of the spirit of rasberries, and one ounce of gilly-flowers, mix the whole up together in a glass morter, and it will be ready for use.
