To Mend Tinware By The Heat Of A Candle

Take a phial about two-thirds

full of Muriatic Acid and put into it little bits of Sheet Zinc as long

as it dissolves them; then put in a crumb of Sal Ammoniac and fill up

with water and it is ready to use. Then with the cork of the phial, wet

the place to be mended with the preparation; then put a piece of Zinc

over the hole and hold a lighted candle or spirit lamp under the place,

which melts the solder on the tin, and causes the zinc to adhere

without further trouble. Wet the zinc also with the solution; or a

little solder may be put on instead of the zinc or with the zinc.
