Stansfields Cough Mixture (13/10/99)

4 oz Linseed [1]
1 1/2 oz Spanish Juice [2 3]
1 1/2 oz Sugar Candy
1 d [penny] Parregoric [4]
2 tablespoonfuls Black Treacle

[You'll find that the addition of paregoric, which contains opium,
camphor and benzoic acid, is a match for most coughs.]

I love the reference to 'Spanish juice'. Fascinating. Gone are the days of popping down the chemists for a pennys worth of opiates, sigh. She'll be dosing up children with their night time drinks next...
