A Certain Cure For Drunkenness

Sulphate of Iron five grains, Magnesia

ten grains, Peppermint water eleven drachms, Spirits of Nutmeg, one

drachm, twice a day. This preparation acts as a tonic and stimulant,

and so partially supplies the place of the accustomed liquor, and

prevents that absolute physical and mental prostration that follows a

sudden breaking off from the use of stimulating drinks.
