section 12


550Item take the heart of a robin redbreast, and put it round the neck of him who has this disease, and while it remains there he will not sleep. Item take the same heart,551 and the heart of an owl, and hang them up above the man on whom is this disease, and who has lost his memory, and it will give it back to him. Item the heart of a swallow cooked with honey, the which compels him who eats it to tell things that happened, and things that did not happen yet.552
