For a Cancer in a Womans Breast.

Take Goose-dung and Celidony, stamp them well together, and lay them Plaisterwise on the fore; this shall cleanse the Cancer, kill the Worm, and heal the Sore. For a Cancer in the Mouth take the juice of Plantane-Vinegar, and Rosewater, mingle together of each a like quantity, and wash the mouth often with them.
