The famous Treacle of Francsort is made by
Dostor Peters, who is very skilful in Pharmacy,
and in other respests a very curious Person.
There are more than a Hundred several Drugs
that enter this Composition, which are all rank’d
in Pyramids, on a long Table. The Doftor
hath many Antiquities, and other Rarities, among
which he highly values a Nepbritick Stone
which is as big as ones Head, and cost him 1600
Crowns.
There are in this place a great number of
Jews, but they are as beggarly as those of Am-
fterdam are rich. They wear their Beards picked,
and have black Cloaks, with puffed Ruffs. They
go from Tavern to Tavern, to sell things to
Strangers: But being reputed Thieves, you must
take heed of ’em. They are oblig’d to run and
fetch Water when any Fire happens in the City.
