Againe to colour Leather red.

Take the dye for a red Leather, and take an ounce of brasill, in a nealed pot, and seeth till the third part be wasted, but first wash your leather in Allom water, or in other water, but let it not lye long therein, so let it drye, and put it therein, and let it rest two days and two nights on a tacke, and then hang that Leather in the ayre to drye.
If ye will haue it sanguine, take of Vine braunches ashes, and make lye thereof, and with this lye, seeth your brasill woad, and so ye may colour red therewith.
