A Certain Cure For Drunkenness
Sulphate of Iron five grains, Magnesia
ten grains, Peppermint water eleven drachms, Spirits of Nutmeg, one
drachm, twice a day. This preparation acts as a tonic and stimulant,
and so partially supplies the place of the accustomed liquor, and
prevents that absolute physical and mental prostration that follows a
sudden breaking off from the use of stimulating drinks.
