The Chinese radish (rasphanus sinensis) is
preferable to any kind known, not only for culin-
ary purposes, and giving light but also in Medicine
From the experiments made lately by Dr. Francis
de [Heric--], it is extremely useful in Rhuma-
-tic & pulmonary affections, and has [been]
employed with much success in convulsive
coughs -- it is not liable to {...} spoil by keepering
like other oils _ the plant is not injured by
the strongest frosts _ in May & June the
Seed is gathered which is very abundant _
