Good rhubarb cut into thin slices four scruples. Be pleased to put to the four scruples of rhubarb half,an ounce of currants shrid to the weight of forty grains of cinnamon bruised. Boyle it gently in a quarter of a pint of water to halfe. Strain it, pressing it hard.

Give the child a spoonful of this every other morning and those days you do not, give her a spoonfull or two of the juice of rough dandelion with the third part of a spoonfull of honey and 3 or 4 spoonfulls of slender beer first in mornings and att 4 or 5 a clock in afternoons.
