Medicines for the Legs. A Plaister for swollen Legs, or when you have no feeling in them

Take a pound of Pitch, and half a pound of Wax, and half a pound of Dears sewet, or Sheep sewet, and boil all these together, then strain them through a linnen cloth, and so make a plaister of white Leather, of the bignesse of the sore place, and let it lie to the sore three or four daies, and then if it not be whole make another plaister, and lay it again, and so dresse it till it be whole, for this will bring feeling again, and mollifie the humor, and asswage the swelling.
