Take Chickweed, and seeth it in fair running Water, till it be tender, and then strain it from the water, and brbay it in a Morter, and put it in a bottle of milk, and put thereto Deers Sewet, or sheeps Tallow, and Oatmeal, and seeth it all together till it come to a Pultis, then wash the sore place with the water that the Chickweed was sodden in, and then lay the Pultis on a linnen cloth, and lay it to the sore. Or take the dung of a Gander new laid, and lay it upon the place where the Thorn is upon a linnen cloth, and this will draw him out.
