Egyptian Cement

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.
