day_n let_v he_o live_v temperate_o it_o be_v not_o the_o same_o thing_n with_o cordial_n as_o with_o cathartic_o and_o emetic_n for_o i_o not_o only_o approve_v of_o their_o use_n in_o fever_n if_o the_o patient_n desire_v it_o before_o the_o bark_n be_v give_v but_o i_o advise_v in_o the_o time_n of_o take_v their_o clyster_n that_o they_o neglect_v not_o the_o use_n of_o they_o not_o that_o they_o be_v absolute_o necessary_a for_o the_o cure_n but_o because_o they_o be_v of_o wonderful_a efficacy_n for_o strengthen_v and_o keep_v up_o a_o good_a heart_n drive_v off_o its_o heaviness_n and_o prevent_v disorder_n in_o the_o head_n for_o a_o cordial_n i_o will_v have_v they_o take_v in_o intermit_a fever_n one_o ounce_n of_o cinnamon_n water_n two_o ounce_n of_o borrage_n water_n as_o many_o of_o wallnut_n water_n the_o same_o quantity_n of_o balm_n water_n two_o drachm_n of_o the_o confection_n of_o alcherme_n one_o ounce_n and_o a_o half_a of_o syrup_n of_o lemon_n or_o pomegranate_n mix_v they_o all_o together_o and_o drop_v in_o some_o drop_n of_o spirit_n of_o sulphur_n to_o give_v it_o a_o agreeable_a acidity_n it_o have_v a_o extraordinary_a pleasant_a taste_n let_v they_o take_v one_o or_o two_o spoonful_n every_o hour_n those_o that_o have_v a_o vomit_v or_o looseness_n with_o a_o intermit_a fever_n let_v they_o make_v use_n of_o this_o for_o their_o cordial_n take_v of_o plantain_n and_o knotgrass_n water_v each_o four_o ounce_n diaphoretic_a mineral_n and_o hartshorn_n prepare_v each_o two_o scruple_n confection_n of_o hyacinth_n 2_o drachm_n syrup_n of_o diacodium_fw-la and_o syrup_n of_o quince_n each_o one_o ounce_n mix_v they_o all_o together_o and_o take_v of_o it_o every_o hour_n as_o before_o in_o fever_n continual_a and_o malignant_a i_o will_v according_o advise_v a_o cordial_a julep_n to_o purify_v the_o blood_n and_o resist_v the_o malignity_n by_o cause_v a_o gentle_a perspiration_n let_v it_o be_v this_o take_v one_o ounce_n of_o treacle_n water_n two_o ounce_n of_o scorzoneer_n water_n carduus_fw-la benedictus_fw-la and_o scabious_a water_n the_o same_o quantity_n each_o twenty_o grain_n of_o powder_n of_o

ounce_n of_o the_o syrup_n of_o clove_n mix_v it_o all_o together_o as_o before_o these_o sort_n of_o cordial_a julep_n can_v fail_v of_o good_a success_n those_o that_o instead_o of_o the_o powder_n of_o viper_n have_v rather_o make_v use_n of_o its_o volatile_a salt_n and_o bezoar_v stone_n if_o they_o can_v get_v it_o may_v put_v in_o ten_o or_o twelve_o grain_n of_o each_o if_o the_o fever_n be_v very_o malignant_a it_o be_v thus_o provide_v against_o the_o troublesome_a accident_n that_o usual_o attend_v the_o most_o dangerous_a and_o malignant_a fever_n and_o the_o bark_n take_v in_o clyster_n which_o have_v nothing_o more_o to_o do_v but_o to_o take_v off_o the_o ferment_n of_o the_o fever_n will_v do_v it_o so_o easy_o that_o it_o will_v be_v a_o pleasant_a surprise_n to_o the_o patient_n and_o will_v give_v satisfaction_n to_o the_o world_n of_o its_o usefulness_n in_o clyster_n which_o we_o here_o treat_v of_o i_o think_v by_o this_o manner_n of_o give_v the_o bark_n i_o have_v avoid_v all_o the_o inconvenience_n which_o have_v hitherto_o accompany_v it_o in_o the_o ordinary_a method_n of_o take_v it_o it_o be_v plain_a the_o patient_n can_v complain_v of_o the_o bitter_a taste_n because_o they_o do_v not_o take_v it_o by_o the_o mouth_n it_o be_v also_o evident_a there_o will_v be_v no_o more_o a_o weight_n feel_v in_o the_o stomach_n because_o it_o be_v not_o receive_v there_o as_o to_o the_o heat_n it_o be_v certain_a the_o grosser_n part_n of_o the_o bark_n which_o be_v the_o sole_a cause_n of_o it_o stay_v in_o the_o body_n no_o long_o than_o it_o be_v just_o requisite_a for_o the_o natural_a heat_n to_o digest_v it_o and_o extract_v the_o volative_a and_o wholesome_a part_n the_o remain_a dregs_o be_v soon_o carry_v off_o without_o take_v so_o long_o a_o course_n as_o it_o necessary_o must_v if_o take_v by_o the_o mouth_n it_o must_v of_o necessity_n have_v a_o very_a good_a effect_n upon_o the_o body_n which_o otherwise_o will_v be_v incommode_v with_o that_o noxious_a and_o uneasy_a weight_n which_o be_v the_o cause_n of_o those_o heat_n so_o much_o complain_v of_o there_o be_v only_o those_o patient_n that_o be_v trouble_v with_o the_o pile_n that_o can_v suffer_v any_o pain_n in_o give_v back_o the_o clyster_n the_o powder_n as_o it_o pass_v fret_v the_o part_n so_o i_o advise_v they_o to_o diminish_v the_o dose_n and_o put_v but_o half_a a_o ounce_n of_o the_o powder_n or_o rather_o no_o powder_n at_o all_o but_o take_v a_o strong_a decoction_n of_o the_o bark_n which_o will_v cause_v no_o pain_n at_o all_o and_o at_o the_o same_o time_n perform_v the_o cure_n as_o well_o only_o with_o this_o difference_n that_o it_o will_v cost_v the_o more_o because_o you_o must_v use_v a_o large_a quantity_n of_o the_o bark_n which_o i_o remark_n here_o so_o much_o the_o more_o willing_o because_o this_o advice_n may_v be_v serviceable_a to_o all_o sort_n of_o people_n that_o for_o what_o reason_n so_o ever_o shall_v think_v fit_a rather_o to_o make_v use_n of_o a_o strong_a decoction_n than_o of_o the_o powder_n itself_o though_o to_o speak_v the_o truth_n except_o for_o so_o important_a a_o reason_n as_o that_o of_o the_o pile_n i_o shall_v always_o give_v the_o bark_n in_o substance_n the_o preference_n i_o can_v affirm_v that_o within_o these_o three_o year_n since_o i_o first_o make_v the_o discovery_n of_o the_o manner_n of_o give_v it_o i_o have_v make_v use_n of_o it_o in_o the_o cure_n of_o above_o two_o thousand_o patient_n of_o every_o age_n and_o sex_n who_o never_o perceive_v any_o inconvenience_n notwithstanding_o the_o great_a number_n of_o clyster_n they_o have_v take_v and_o some_o have_v take_v a_o great_a many_o more_o than_o other_o by_o reason_n of_o the_o relapse_n they_o have_v have_v from_o the_o extraordinary_a malignity_n and_o stubbornness_n of_o their_o fever_n i_o do_v question_v but_o that_o this_o remedy_n will_v find_v so_o good_a a_o reception_n that_o the_o more_o it_o be_v know_v to_o the_o physician_n the_o more_o it_o will_v be_v esteem_v by_o they_o and_o i_o dare_v say_v the_o patient_n will_v own_v themselves_o oblige_v to_o i_o for_o have_v first_o discover_v the_o way_n to_o the_o most_o convenient_a easy_a and_o certain_a cure_n that_o have_v be_v hitherto_o in_o practice_n for_o who_o be_v not_o sensible_a that_o abundance_n of_o sick_a have_v die_v because_o they_o have_v not_o be_v able_a to_o get_v down_o the_o bark_n and_o consider_v there_o be_v many_o that_o have_v a_o invincible_a antipathy_n to_o the_o take_n of_o other_o drug_n which_o will_v be_v for_o their_o health_n this_o manner_n of_o give_v by_o clyster_n what_o they_o refuse_v to_o take_v by_o mouth_n will_v be_v of_o more_o general_a use_n than_o it_o appear_v to_o be_v at_o first_o and_o perhaps_o one_o day_n or_o other_o some_o will_v acknowledge_v that_o i_o have_v in_o some_o measure_n contribute_v towards_o the_o perfection_n of_o physic_n i_o have_v have_v the_o experience_n of_o it_o in_o my_o remedy_n against_o a_o dysentery_n have_v meet_v with_o many_o patient_n who_o tenderness_n of_o constitution_n have_v put_v i_o to_o a_o great_a deal_n of_o trouble_n in_o give_v my_o specific_a by_o mouth_n by_o reason_n of_o the_o vomit_v it_o cause_n and_o i_o have_v happy_o succeed_v by_o use_v it_o in_o clyster_n i_o have_v also_o communicate_v the_o manner_n of_o give_v this_o to_o m._n the_o first_o physician_n who_o do_v i_o the_o honour_n to_o approve_v of_o it_o as_o well_o as_o that_o of_o the_o bark_n and_o every_o one_o know_v of_o what_o a_o authority_n his_o approbation_n be_v as_o to_o what_o i_o say_v relate_v to_o the_o quickness_n of_o the_o cure_n which_o be_v perfect_o and_o much_o soon_o

than_o can_v be_v give_v by_o mouth_n in_o the_o second_o place_n they_o give_v it_o always_o in_o substance_n and_o consequent_o it_o must_v have_v the_o better_a effect_n three_o it_o be_v subtle_a
