LINIMENT FOR WINDGALLS, STRAINS AND GROWTH OF LUMPS ON MAN OR HORSE.
One ounce oil of spike, half ounce origanum, half ounce amber, aqua fortis and sal amoniac 1 drachm, spirits of salts 1 drachm oil of sassafras half ounce, harts-horn half ounce. Bathe once or twice a day.
This powder will cure more diseases than any other medicine known; such as Distemper, Fersey, Hidebound, Colds, and all lingering diseases which may arise from impurity of the blood or lungs.
- Take 1 lb. comfrey root, half lb. antimony, half lb. sulphur, 3 oz. of saltpetre, half lb. laurel berries, half lb. juniper berries, half lb. angetice seed, half lb. rosin, 3 oz. alum, half lb. copperas, half lb. master wort, half lb. gun powder.
Mix all to a powder and give in the most cases, one table spoonful in mash feed once a day till cured. Keep the horse dry, and keep him from the cold water six hours after using it.
FOR CUTS OR WOUNDS ON HORSE OR MAN.
Take fishworms mashed up with old bacon oil, and tie on the wound, which is the surest and safest cure.
OIL FOR COLLARS.
This oil will also cure bruises, sores, swellings, strains or galls.
Take fishworms and put them in a crock or other vessel 24 hours, till they become clean. Then put them in a bottle and throw plenty of salt upon them. Place them near a stove and they will turn to oil.
Rub the parts affected freely. I have cured knee-sprung horses with this oil frequently.
SORE AND SCUMMED EYES ON HORSES.
Take fresh butter or rabbit's fat, honey, and the white of three eggs, well stirred up with salt, and black pepper ground to a fine powder. Mix it well and apply to the eye with a feather. Also rub above the eye (in the hollow,) with the salve. Wash freely with cold spring water.
