An excellent Elixir for the Chin-cough in Children.
Take of liquorice root and honey, each four ounces, flowers of benjamin one dram, half a dram of anniseed, two scruples of camphire, and an ounce of salt of tartar; infuse the whole into a quart of rectified spirits of wine; let it digest in the liquor about four weeks, only that you must take care to shake it once every day; then let it be strained off and bottled up for use. Give the child from five to twenty drops, according to its age and strength.
