Medicines for the Gout. An approved medicine for the Gout

Take a quantity of unwrought Wax, and four times so much Boars Grease, and as much black Sope as the Boars Grease, then take the Boars Grease first, and seeth it in a skillet, and then clarifie it, and melt the Wax by it self, and put them together with the sope, then take it from the fire and stir it a great while till it be like a salve, then make a plaister of sheeps Leather, and when your pain doth come lay on this plaister somewhat broader then the grief is, and let it lie on twenty four hours before it be removed, and you shall find great ease in it. This salve will be good a whole year, if it be kept close.
