To Make Perfum'd Pastels Recipe

Take a Pound of Sugar sifted thro' a Lawn Sieve, two Grains of

Amber-Grease, one Grain of Musk; grind the Amber and Musk very fine,

mix it with the Sugar, make it up to a Paste with Gum-Dragon well

steep'd in Orange-Flower-Water, and put in a Spoonful of Ben; beat

the Paste well in a Mortar, then roll it pretty thin, cut the

Pastels with a small Thimble, and print them with a Seal; let them

lye on Papers to dry; when they are dry, put them in a Glass that

has a Cover, or in some close Place, where they may not lose their

Scent.
