A Fume in a Consumption.

Take Fistic nut peel, Myrrh, Amber, each 2 drams; Sulphur vive, Orpiment, each 1 dram; make all into a gross Powder, the Smoak of which is to be receiv'd into the Mouth, be the help of a Funnel inversed.

Whilst the Pareuchyma of the Lungs is imbued and replenish'd with the extraneous Juices: Your stronger sort of Fumes are by no means to be used, but milder ones are not to omitted, saith Bennet.

Fumes are not to be taken immediately upon the Erosion of a Vessel, or breach of Parenchyma of the Lungs, but 14 days at least after the spitting of Blood, saith the same Author.
