A fine Water useful in Consumptions.
Take two pounds of snails in the shells, six nutmegs sliced thin, leaves of penny-royal, hysop and ground ivy, four handfuls of each; mix the whole together, and pour upon them a gallon of new milk from the cow, then distil the ingredients over a slow fire, and sweeten it with sugar-candy; when it has stood to cool, strain off the liquor, and let it be bottled up for use. Three gills of it maybe taken at different times in the day.
