Ultimately it was made thrice (?) the given strength, according to the following receipt:

"Dose, two ounces and upwards. "It will be observed that the chloride of calcium is omitted, but the proportion is so small (?) that even when it was included there was no difference in the action. This inexpensive mixture can be effectually recommended. It will be found to possess every advantage attributed to the natural variety, the necessity for buying which seems to be done away with".
