For such Cholics as are attended with Vomitting.

Take of compound wormwood and black cherry water, each two ounces; an ounce and a half of lemon juice, one dram of salt of wormwood, one ounce of syrup of poppies, one dram of spirit of mint, and the same quantity of compound lavender; mix all these together, and take three spoonsful when the vomiting ceases, and in most cases it will prevent the return of the fit.
