|Dilute Alcohol, using 2 parts stronger alcohol to 1 of water,||a sufficient quantity to obtain by percolation 2 ½ pints of tincture.|
I dispense with the Red Saunders, as I find no reason for its employment, and obtain a very dark and handsome tincture with the above formula.

Dose: One to two tablespoonfuls for an adult one-half to two teaspoonfuls for an infant.
