November 23, 1664. Monsieur Le Febure presented his printed discourse, both in French and English, upon the preparation of Sir Walter Raleigh’s cordial. He likewise read a Latin letter sent him from Paris, and signed for attestation by some of the principal physicians and chirurgeons of that city, concerning the art practised by one Monsieur Bienaise, of healing tendons and nerves transversely cut, so as to restore the patient to the full use of his limbs. He was desired to leave the letter with the society, which he promised to do, after he had shewn to some of the college of physicians.
