When a person has caught cold, it may be cured by lying much in bed; by drinking plentifully of warm sack-whey, with twenty or thirty drops of spirit of hartshorn in each draught; by avoiding all flesh-meat; by taking a scruple of the compound powder of crabs claws every night and morning; in short, by treating it as a flight fever : for this reason, a small dose of Dr. James's Fever Powder is an excellent remedy in this disorder. If the patient has a cough, let it be softened by a mixture of a little sugar candy, with oil of sweet almonds, or a solution of gum ammoniac in an ounce or two of barley water; or rather two or three spoonfuls of the milk of gum ammoniac every three or four hours : these things will render expectoration easy.
