A Cure For Love

Take twelve ounces of dislike, one pound of resolution, two grains of

common sense, two ounces of experience, a large sprig of time, and three

quarts of cooling water of consideration. Set them over a gentle fire of

love, sweeten it with sugar of forgetfulness, skim it with the spoon of

melancholy, put it in the bottom of your heart, cork it with the cork of

clean conscience. Let it remain and you will quickly find ease and be

restored to your senses again.

These things can be had of the apothecary at the house of Understanding

next door to Reason, on Prudent street.
