Elixer proprietatis is a useful family medicine for all cases when the digestive powers are out of order. 1 oz saffron, 1 oz of myrrh + 1 oz aloe. Pulverize thin, let the myrrh steep in half a pint of brandy or [N E Rum?], for 4 days; then add the saffron + aloe; let it stand in the sunshine, or in some warm place for a fortnight; taking care to shake it well twice a day - At the end of the fortnight, fill up the bottle (a common size one) with brandy or N E rum and let it stand a month. It costs six times as much to buy it
