A GOOD REMEDY FOR THE FEVER.
Good morning, dear Thursday! Take away from [name] the 77-fold fevers. Oh! thou dear Lord Jesus Christ, take them away from him! + + +
This must be used on Thursday for the first time, on
Friday for the second time, and on Saturday for the third time; and each time thrice.. The prayer of faith has also to be said each time, and not a word dare be spoken to anyone until the sun has risen. Neither dare the sick per, son speak to anyone till after sunrise; nor eat pork, nor drink milk, nor cross a running water, for nine days.
