From the April 1897 issue of The Christian Science Journal

TAKE a robin's leg, (Mind) the drumstick merely; Put it in a tub Filled with water nearly; Set it out of doors, In a place that's shady; Let it stand a week, (Three days for a lady); Dip a spoonful in to a five-pail kettle; It should be of tin, Or, perhaps, bell-metal; Fill the kettle up, Put it in a boiling; Skim the liquor well, To prevent its oiling; For thickening and for salt, Take of rice one kernel; Use, to light the fire, Any but our journal. Let the liquor boil Half an hour—no longer: (If it's for a man, You can make it stronger).
