To strengthen the Stomach.
Take of Spanish angelica root one dram, the same quantity of calamus aromaticus two drams of gentian root, roman wormwood, and tops of centuary, each a quarter of a handful; put to them half a dram of coriander seed, and let the whole simmer in an earthen vessel over a slow fire, with a pint of clear spring water; then let the liquor be strained off, and put to it four ounces of gentian water, set it to cool in a bottle, and drink two spoonsful of it in the day, one when you get up in the morning, and the other about five in the afternoon but you must not eat any thing till an hour afterwards.
