To make conserue of Uiolets. Chapter. xviii. TAke the flowres of Uiolets and picke them from the stalke, beat and grind them with suger, as you did your Roses, to these put double the waight of Suger to ye waight of Uiolet flowres, but to all other flowres put .iii. partes of Suger to .i. parte of the flowres.

The vertue of the same.

COnserue of Uiolet flowres is good against the heate and influmation of Coler, called yellow coler, it quencheth thirstines, it maketh ye Belly moyst & soluble.
