Invigorating drink. Slice some bread that we use for sauces, six or eight slices, add rose or cinnamon water, add some sugar (or rose, violet sugar). Add some czwker candy and some manus Christi; pour a bit of good almond milk to the patient, if the patient can eat the sauce, stir it so it will be dense like a porridge, if the patient is feeble and can't swallow, dip it in a plate and feed him, this will reinvigorate the patient.
