Health, To Enjoy: A Very Useful Recipe

November 1st, 2022

One tablespoonful of lime-water taken in a little milk in a morning keeps a person in good health; or to look well and keep well, simply boil one pennyworth of watercress ten minutes in one pint of water, the water to be drunk in milk in equal parts; to each teacupful add one tablespoonful of lime water, and the best of health is the result; use it freely and at any time; the cost is a mere trifle. This entirely dispenses with all sorts of 2s. 6d Blood Mixture bottles, for everyone knows the value of the watercress, and most people know the value of lime water, and all know the properties of milk.
