A Refrigerating Julep.
Take waters of Purslane, Borage, Wood Sorrel, each 4 ounces; Damask Rose water, Juice of Lemons (fresh drawn, clear, and not musty), 1 ounces; Syrup of Raspberries 2 ounces, mix.
It's a very desirable Medicine in Fevers, to temper Adult Filth and Relicts in the Ventricle, incide its tough Phlegm, extinguish its Fervour, alleviate unquenchable Thirst, and repress enormous Ebullitions of the Blood.
But too much of any thing is never good; for of the Juice of Lemons (saith Riverius) this is to be noted, that we ought to be cautious in the use of it; because if it be given too frequently or liberally, it makes Aphthae in the Stomach, and Excoriations, whence succeeds Lienterie which thing may much more be said of strong Mineral Acids. The Dose is 3 or 4 ounces thrice a day.
