Laus Deo

Butter of Antimony is the Philosophers Mercury

It is the Body changed into a Spirit

a Chemical Death and Resurrection only wanted - to obtain which put the Butter to some very pure Regulus in Powder and then unite Body and Soul together by digesting to Putrefaction which will soon be done if you dont stop your Glass but if you stop your Glass it will never digest or putrify but remain in the same State for ever

digested to Whiteness is the White Stone to be fermented with Silver - to redness is the Red Stone to be fermented with Gold

the Butter Alone may be made to putrify - quickly if you put it in a Body with a Blind Head but if you nip up or stop your Glass it will never Work but remains the same for ever because the universal Principle which performs the whole by Secret incubation unknown to the Artist cannot possibly enter
