is made thus: - Take of muriatic acid, three pounds; of feathered tin, as described in the process of dyeing wool scarlet, fourteen ounces; to the tin add gradually the muriatic acid; afterwards, with due and great precaution, by degrees, in the course of a day or two, two pounds of sulphuric acid. Care must be taken that the vessel in which this operation is conducted, be of stone ware or of glass. These acids being mixed with the tin, should be left to saturate themselves with it, which they will do in time, without artificial heat; but the dissolution of the tin will be rapidly promoted by a sand heat. This murio-sulphuric solution of tin, thus made, will be perfectly transparent and colourless, and will probably remain so for years, without suffering any precipitation of the metal.
