      Mr. PRINTER.
The following receipt for the Gout is exactly tran-
scribed from a very antient Dutch Author, which
I wish to be published in your paper, for the
benefit of such as are subject to that honourable
Malady.
                   For the GOUT
TAKE an ould Fat Goose, prepare her as
if you would roast her: Then take a Kit-
line or young cat, flea it, cast away the head and
entrails thereof, and coatund the flesh thereof in
a Mortar, add as then thereto fat bakone One
ounce, three quarters of an Ounce of Wax; as
much white Rosine, and whyte Frankinsence;
beat all these together, and replenish there with the
Goose: broach her, and sow her fast to the spit
least any thing fall thereout; roast her, and re-
ceive the droppings thereof in a dripping pan:
when as now the Goose is dressed and roasted that
she droppeth no more, throw her as then away,
least any body eat thereof. 
    And this Salve of Unctione cureth the Gout,
                    Doctor RARE
