To dye stuff a limon, or lemon colour.
Boil the stuff an hour and a half with 3 pound of alum, 3 ounces of cerusse, and 3 ounces of arsenick; pour off the water, then put in fresh, and in the same kettle make a liquor of 16 pounds of green dyer's-wood, 3 ounces of pot-ashes, 2 ounces of turmerick; let them settle and boil; then pass the stuff quick through it, and it will be of a good lemon-colour.

To dye silk a Limon-colour.
This dye must first of all be tenderly handled, and done in weak suds, and may be regulated by comparing the colour with a lemon; which when done, rinse and dry it.
