For mending china, glass or woodenware: Take one
pound of the best White Glue, one-half pound dry White Lead, one quart
soft Water, one-half pint Alcohol. Put the three first articles in a
dish, and that dish in a pot of boiling water. Let it boil until
dissolved, then add the Alcohol, and boil again until mixed. A little
Camphor should be added, to preserve it and disguise its composition.
Put in small bottles; 25 cents each.
