Black Ink

Extract of Logwood one ounce, Bicromate of Potash

one-quarter ounce. Pulverize and mix in a quart of soft hot water. This

makes a beautiful jet black ink, which will not spoil by freezing.


One-half gallon of soft water, one ounce Gum Arabic, one

ounce Brown Sugar, one ounce clean Copperas, three ounces powdered Nut

Gall. Mix and shake occasionally from 7 to 10 days and strain. The best

copying ink made.
