Febrifugus spiritus Domini Clutton. Mr. Clutton's febrifuge spirit.

Take the oil of sulphur, by the bell, and rightly prepared, rectified oil of vitriol, and spirit of salt, of each equal parts; and of rectified spirit of wine, triple the quantity of the whole. Digest them together for a month, then distil to dryness.

As much of this spirit as renders pure water agreeably acid is sometimes given in every draught of common drink in ardent and inflammatory fevers; and in those of the nervous and putrid kind it is administered in cordial and antiseptic liquors. We have sometimes employed it, though without any marked advantages. See the Certain Method of curing all continued Fevers, by Jo. Glutton.
