Take the yolk of a new lain egg beat it with a spoon to the greatest thinness add three ounces of prune water stirring them continually that they may be well mixed___This liquor cured a gentleman in New Jersey whose arm from his shoulder to the finger ends was so withered that it would not bleed and was one forth less than the other__ The following is his own account.
I rubbed my hand and arm seven or eight times a day from the middle of March till the first of May following without feeling any sensation in them but about the third of that month I felt pain from the elbow to the wrist, it seemed as if ten thousand pins were pricking me in that part, this pricking continued and in a few days, I felt similar pain in all my fingers. Soon after I could felt the flesh brush, when rubbing I observed the color of the skin to be natural. I continued the prouss, my arm and fingers gradually increased in size and strength, by the first of August. I did a little work in harvest and soon after could plough, chop and . In about one year they became as large and strong as they had ever been. NB This liquor has cured others, many, in similar circumstances.
