TO MAKE A VERY STRONG GLUE.
Take an ounce of the best isinglass, dissolve it by moderate heat in a pint of ■water, strain it through a piece of cloth then add of the best glue in cake, which has been previously soaked for twentyfour hours, and also a gill of the strongest vinegar ; let the whole dissolve by placing it near the fire ; after it is dissolved let it boil once up, and strain off all the impurities ; this will make a glue which may be reserved for that part of your work which requires particular strength, or where the joints themselves do not contribute to hold the work together, such as small fillet 3 and mouldings, or carved patterns that are merely held on the surface by the glue.
