A Refrigerating Glyster.

Take of the common Emulsion 12 ounces; Oil of Lilies 4 ounces; Salt Prunel 2 scruples; Sugar of Lead 1 scruple; mix, and inject it milk warm.

It's adviseable, when a very acrid, fiery Bile being plentiful suffused into the Intestines, excites Fervor, Fury, and Dolour, as in the cholera morbus, and some sort of Fevers.

Some have dared to inject Glysters actually cold; and some again condemn it, as male Practice But seeing the Stomach, (which is of a far more exquisite Sense, and hath such a sympathetic Influence upon the whole System of the Spirits) I say, seeing the Stomach can bear cold, yea even icy Draughts, why should not the Guts the same, or more? But I never made any Experiment of this Matter, and therefore only propose, but not impose it.
