Regarding the cure of warts etc.

Let the patient abstain from all melancholic foods,467 such as beef (and) duck, (and) ganders, old salt-meat, kail, peas, cheese, meat fried in fat, entrails of animals; then take hens' feet and put them under cinders until their flesh and skin separate, then rub the hot skin on them (the warts) three or four times, and then extract the blood all round, with your nail.468
