Sympathetic Cures

And I remember, I have seen a good quantity of that jelly that is sometimes found on the ground, and by the Vulgar call’d a Star-shoot, as if it remain’d upon the extinction of a falling star which being brought to an eminent Physician of my acquaintance, he lightly digested it in a well-stopt glass for a long time, and by that alone resolv’d it into a permanent Liquor, which he extols as a specifick to be outwardly apply’d against Wens.
