all descriptions. It has been thoroughly tested
by the medical and the public, and is re
commended and extensively used by physicians.
This soap is combined with pure sulphur, which
enters the pores of the skin, and being absorbed
into the blood removes therefiom all impuri
ties by exciting the skin to healthy action. Be

insist upon it, and take no imitation. Sold by

seventeenth century, is extremely satir

it unto the poor.' To Cromwell he be

adds the Earl, 'had been to have given

Perhaps the most characteristic bequest
in this will is the following : 'Seeing
