To all gentlemen, ladies and others, The intent of Publishing this Book in this Nature is, that each Person shall first have the Reading of it through, and then Consider the weighty Matters herein Contain'd. The intent being only for the Publick Good, as to the Preservation of Life in Time of Need. It having met with that Reception in the Kingdom of England, that there was upwards of Four Hundred Thousand of them Distributed. So that in Case, after Twelve Hours Time to Peruse it over, this Jewel shall not be thought worthy of the Price of one single Penny, and to be lockt up in your Cabinet, as the most estimable Riches in your Family; Praying to God so favour this Kingdom, that there may be never occasion to make use of it. Be pleas'd to keep it Clean, and return it to the Bearer. N. B. Since the nations of Great Britain are equally Concern'd, And are under the apprehensions of fear, of that contagious distemper the plague spreading, by the Eggs being scatter'd as the Weather shall become Warm, in this year ensuing 1722. which the two famous Citys in England and Ireland, (viz.) London and Dublin, too severly felt the smart, let it not be forgot. Therefore, as the present wise government of the Kingdom of England. thought fit that the Learne College on Physitians of London, should prescribe remedys for every family to be their own physicians, in the Day of Tribulation and Afflictions, and time of Need; when no one will attend them. They have in this book, without any Reserve to themselves, Candidly set forth, the true experienc d remedies made us e of in the Year of the great Sickness 1665 in London, where-with so many Thousands were Preserv'd, of all that took it, not one Died, which was done by Order of the King and Council; with the true Receipts and Rules for its prevention and Cure. Courteous Reader, Consider why the same Measures taken in England, for the Prevention and Cure of that Pestilential Distemper call'd the Plague; may not be as useful in this Kingdom, since if you Compare the terrible Infection now rageing in France with that in Dublin in the Year 1652. and that in London in the Year 1665. you will find them equal the same; and therefore ought to be kept in every Family, to be ready at Hand, when no one will attend them. Dedicated to the Honourable Sir Hans Sloane, Knight and Baronet, President to the famous College of Physicians in London [Ressource électronique]
