section 30


The following is the most appropriate and best bath here, a bath of warm milk,191 and as it would be too costly for poor people, let them boil three gallons, or four of new milk, soak a sheet folded in three therein, and before it begins to cool, put it about the sick man. Have milk slightly heated, at hand192 to pour on him for fear of his being injured by cold, and dry him


thereafter with a fine linen cloth. This is good for everyone who is in consumption, unless193 fever or an imposthume be present.
