Take two or three large handfuls of the fresh-gathered leaves of the Jamestown weed, (called Apple Peru in New England,) and pound it in a mortar till you have extracted the juice. Then put the juice into a tin sauce-pan, mixed with sufficient lard to make a thick salve. Stew them together half an hour, and then put the mixture into gallipots and cover it closely. It is excellent to rub on chilblains, and other inflammatory external swellings, apply ing it several times a day.
