Scope and content

File consists of approximately 40 chiefly undated recipes for household preparations and medical remedies, on varying sizes of paper. Also included are 4 letters: one is addressed to Miss Taylor and includes a recipe on the verso in a different hand (1848); one is a crossed letter; one is addressed to Mrs. Aldam, Frickley Hall, from a food producer regarding pressing walnuts and supplying anchovies (1860); and the last is addressed "Dear Warde" and includes a recipe for blackberry wine. The majority of recipes included in the file feature household preparations such as various colours of dye, washing solutions, soap, and directions for painting in oil. Other documents include a sheet of figures and price list. The medical formulas in the file include: barley water, tinctures, camphor mixture, magnesia and bark medicines, sore throat treatment, and a treatment against infection. The one culinary recipes in the file is for lemon blancmange. One clipping from the "Morning Herald" (1781) provides a remedy for consumption. One longer clipping from a London newspaper features recipes for potatoes and cabbage (1780s?). Two documents appear to be knitting patterns (one is for a knitted petticoat). One later document in the file is a bill and receipt addressed to Mrs. Warde-Aldam from a tobacconists shop.
