233. Dyeing skins apple-green

Process skins in an apple-green dye in the same way. Treat them with alum, as we have said before, and when they have been washed after the alum, sew them up into bladders. Afterwards take well-pounded weld, cook it with well-defrothed urine, and, when it has cooled, put the broth into the bladders and process them as we said before for 5 or 6 days. After this, pour it out and dye the sheepskins as we taught above, and after dyeing wash and dry them.
