238. Pandius again

Take 2 pounds of ground thin red-sea coral of a good color, 1 pound of murex lac, and 2 oz of calcothar; grind and mix them all together, and cook them with urine; and when you want to dye, put some of the broth into the bladders, after processing in defrothed urine; process for 2 days. After this wash them well, and dry them out.
