A Japanic Draught.
Take Frog Spawn water 2 ounces; Syrup of dried Roses 2 drams; powder'd Japanic Earth 1 scruple; Sugar of Lead 4 grains; Oil of Cinnamon 1 drop; Liquid Laudanum 20 drops, mix.
It hath marvellous Virtues against Vomiting of Blood, Spitting of Blood, immoderate Flux of the Menses, and all other internal Bleedings.
Tachenius (Hippoc. p. 104) saith in distilling Frogs Spawn, it rises all into Water, except some black, dry granula, and it abounds with an occult Volatile Alcali, and precipitates the Lead out of a Solution of Saccharum Saturni, sooner, and more than any other refrigerating Water whatsoever. That 'tis to be highly esteem'd, for he knew it happily cure a desperate Hemorrhage of the Uterus, and tells us, that outwardly apply'd, it, without fail, takes away the pain of the Gout and Stone.
