- V The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent: and making part 0'! the same.

To all whom it may concern.-

' Be it known that I, HENRY' S. DRAPER, of Rochester, in the county of Monroe, and State of New York, have invented or discovered a new and useful Extract for Medicinal Uses; and I do hereby declarethe following to. be descriptive thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to Which my invention appertains, to fully understand and use the same.

In carrying out my invention, I make use of the leaves, bark, root, covering, or coating of the shell of the nut and the wood of the black walnut tree, either separately or in combination. 4

A For this purpose I strip the leaves or bark from the tree, or cut up the ivood or the. outer coating of nutshell, and place either or all in a suitable kettle or boiler, with a quantity ofrain-water, in the propor- I a H tion of about one pound of the coating of the shell,

I or of about two pounds of leaves, bark, or-root, to,

about four gallons of rain water, and boil the, mass until it leaves about one gallon, or until it attains the desired color, by which I am governed in concluding that the extract is of the proper strength.

The compound is then allowed, to 0001, after which it is strained, and then bottled, and is now ready for use.

Or I place the ingredients in a retort,and cause I them to undergo the process of distillation, and'the The extract is remedial in cases of rheumatism neuralgia, warts, corns, bnnions, chilblains, inflaminations, sore feet, and all aches and pains generally.

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

The within-described extract, as a new and usefiil medicine for the purposes set forth.

To the abovespecificationof my discovery, I have signed my name, this 25th day-of January, 1869, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
