Although we have described an iron liquor in a preceding section, it may be useful to give the following process for another here. Fill a cast-iron boiler with pyrolignous acid, add to it old iron well oxidized, and boil. The solution of the oxide will take place rapidly. When the iron grows clean, and the solution black as ink, throw the whole into a cask, to be employed as occasion shall require.
