To dye silk a gold colour.
This must be dyed after the same manner as the straw colour is, only when it is become reasonably deep, put it into the last suds of the orange-liquor and stir it therein so long, till you are sure it is grown deep enough, then rinse it out and dry it.

To dye stuff a GOLD colour.
Let the stuff be first dyed yellow, then set fresh water over the fire, and for every pound of ware, use an ounce of fustel wood, call'd also yellow shavings, and a good quantity of coarse pot-ashes; let the dye boil for half an hour, and afterwards work the stuff in it.
