Receipt for Scouring Drops. Addressed to a Lady
Chemistry, Domestic Economy
'From the pine that once flourished on Norway's bleak hills, / The skill of the chemist a spirit distills; / From the lemon that grew in some grove in Navarre, / His art too an essence or oil can prepare; / Of the first, dearest Harriet, an ounce you may take, / Of the latter, two drams, and you'll Scouring Drops make'.
