It melted in alcohol, and in water of the temperature of 145. In many of its properties it resembles beeswax, though it differs in others; and Dr Pearson supposes that both substances are composed of the same ingredients, but in different proportions. 1. Two thousand grains of white lac were exposed in Properties, such a degree of heat as was just sufficieht to melt them. As they grew soft and fluid, there oozed out 550 grains of a reddish watery liquid, which smelled like newly baken bread. To this liquid Dr Pearsonhas given the name of of laccic aeid. 2.
