When the stomach is very weak, take fresh lean beef, cut it into 

strips and place the strips into a bottle with a little salt; place in 

a kettle of boiling water and let it remain one hour; pour off the 

liquid and add some water. Begin with a small quantity, and use in the 

same manner and under similar circumstances as beef tea. This is even 

more nourishing than beef tea. 

 

 

BEEF TEA. 

 

Cut one pound of lean beef into shreds, and boil for twenty minutes in 

one quart of water, being particular to remove the scum as often as 

any rises. When it is cool, strain. This is very nourishing and 

palatable, and is of great value in all cases of extreme debility 

where no inflammatory action exists, or after the inflammation is 

subdued. In very low cases a small teaspoonful may be administered 

every fifteen or twenty minutes, gradually increasing the amount given 

as the powers of life return. In cases of complete prostration, after 

the cessation of long exhausting fever it may be used as directed 

above, either alone or in conjunction with a little wine. 

 

 

PANADO. 

 

Put a little water on the fire, with a glass of wine, some sugar, and 

a little grated nutmeg; boil all together a few seconds, and add 

pounded cracker or crumbs of bread, and boil again for a few minutes. 

 

 

FRENCH MILK PORRIDGE. 

 

Stir some oatmeal and water together; let the mixture stand to clear, 

and pour off the water. Then put more water to the meal; stir it well, 

and let it stand till the next day. Strain through a fine sieve, and 

boil the water, adding milk while so doing. The proportion of water 

must be small. With toast this is admirable. 

 

 

COFFEE MILK. 

 

Put a dessertspoonful of ground coffee into a pint of milk; boil a 

quarter of an hour, with a shaving or two of isinglass; let it stand 

ten minutes, and then pour off. 

 

 

RESTORATIVE JELLY. 

 

Take a leg of well-fed pork just as cut up, beat it and break the 

bone; set it over a gentle fire, with three gallons of water and 

simmer to one. Let half an ounce of mace and the same of nutmeg stew 

in it. Strain through a fine sieve. When cold, take off the fat. Give 

a coffee cup of this three times a day, adding salt to the taste. This 

is very valuable in all cases of debility where animal food is 

admissible. 

 

 

DRINK IN DYSENTERY. 

 

Sheep's suet, two ounces; milk, one pint; starch, half an ounce. Boil 

gently for thirty minutes. Use as a common drink. This is excellent 

for sustaining the strength in bad cases of dysentery. 

 

 

CRUST COFFEE. 

 

Toast slowly a thick piece of bread cut from the outside of a loaf 

until it is well browned, but not blackened; then turn upon it boiling
