I t
' I do not confine myselffto the above proportions, but I regard them as the best; 'nor is, it necessary that everyindiyidnal. article should be used, for the materia medics will supply equivalents for some of, them, as is well known to the medical faci'rlty; nor is it p necessary that the several active principles embraced in my preparation be added inthe 'form given abo\'e, as it is the medical prop-f erties rather than thepeculiar' drugs which,
