A Salve for Old Sores and Ulcers

Take a quantity of deer's suet, a pennyworth of white lead, a pennyworth of frankincence, a pennyworth of mastick, a pennyworth of beeswax, the like quantity of resin. Beat the lead, frankincence, rosin and mastick to powder and boile in a sufficient quantity of sack. When you see it melted and come to the face of the skellet take it off and anoint your hands with oile and make it up in roles and bottle up the sack to wash the wounds.
