Breck's Dope

Pine tar 3 oz.

Olive (or castor oil) 2 oz.

Oil of pennyroyal 1 oz.

Citronella 1 oz.

Creosote 1 oz.

Camphor (pulverized) 1 oz.

Large tube of carbolated vaseline.

Heat the tar and oil, and add the other

ingredients; simmer over slow fire until well

mixed. The tar may be omitted if disliked or for

ladies' use.

Breck tells us that his dope was planned to be a counter-irritant after

being bitten as well as a preventer of bites.
