To Heale a Burn without a Scarr

Take a handfull of the yellow scurk that grows on old walls and halfe as much of the white of hen's dung and as much fresh hog's lard as will make it into an ointment. Let it boile well and then strain thro a fine cloth and keep it for use. It must be annointed with it twice a day with a fether and in a short time it will heal it.
