A Cure for the Piles
The Root of the white Lilly roasted till it is soft - pounded & mix’d with an equal guantity of Hog Lard - Miss Barker
A cooling opener
An ounce and a half of  llemna- with the juice- of half a lemon
For the Gout or Rheumatism
Pure, native, rack Brimstone- pounded very fine- one, or for a strong Person, 2 spoonfuls of the Powder mix & with a little Rum or Brandy & taken at Night or in the Morning-
Brimstone is sulphur.
Llemna was difficult to read but it seems as if a problem with ink made the intial letter faint. Charlotte rewrote the letter.
Lemna is Common Duckweed (Lemna minor) which is rich in oxalic acid.
White Lily is possibly Lilium candidum, the bulbs of which have a long history of medicinal use
