The lees1 of sapa are used for the cure of burns, it being the best plan to employ with them the down that grows on the reed; a decoction too, of these lees, is good for the cure of an inveterate cough. They are boiled also in a saucepan with salt and grease as an ointment for tumours of the jaws and neck.

1 The thicker parts of boiled grape-juice. These lees have no affinity with those of wine or vinegar.
