Remedy for the Hydrophobia (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

Remedy for the Hydrophobia.

The "Swabian Mercury," a German daily, printed at Stutt­gart, Germany, contains in No. 181, Monday, September 10, 1810, the following article, with, regard to hydrophobia, which deserves to be reproduced and embodied into this book:

The County-Physician, Dr. Schaller, in Baireuth, has re­cently performed a very successful cure, at the country-seat of the Master of the Royal Forest, Baron de Hardenberg in Karolinenreuth. The doctor has successfully restored to her wonted health a four-year-old girl, who was bitten by a mad dog, despite all the symptoms of hydrophobia, having al­ready been developed, by the application of belladonna and water of distilled laurel-berries. Thus it was proven that there is really a remedy for this terrible malady, even after it has taken hold of the unfortunate victim.

A similar power is ascribed to aniseed oil, if several drops thereof, poured into the wounds, made by the biting of the rabid animal, or of any other poisonous animal or bird. The oil put on a cloth, and laid upon the wound, will draw the poison therefrom, and leave no injurious effects.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
