No 20 from Page 195, A Table of Medicines. Wesley. J. The writer has added information of her own.

We found the actual book some of the succession of numbered recipes are taken from. This was first printed in 1867 but the 1810 edition was the one the editor found and in its 8th edition by then. The author of the recipes has often added her own extra information.
