Mr. COOK’S REMEDY FOR A COUGH
As coughs from catching cold are
so very common, let me recom-
mend the following cheap and pleasant
receipt as a good remedy for recent ones,
especially for infants and young pers-
Boil half a pound of honey; having
Skimmed it, throw therein one
lemon with peel and all, first cut
into thin slices, which boil till
tender; towards the end add two
scruples of saffron cliped small.
The patient is to eat some of the
peel, and take a little of the Syrup often
to ease and cure the cough.
