A Remedy for the Dropsie, whether hot or cold.

Take of the tops of red Mint, of Archangel, or blind nettles, and red Sage, of either a small quantity, stamp them together, and strain the juice of them into some stale Ale, so much as will serve to drink morning and evening; do this for ten days together, and (God willing) it will effect the Cure.
