First example of employment excerpt: THE APOTHECARY. IN London, the Apothecaries are one of the City Companies, and have a very fine Hall in Blackfriars, from which all the Surgeons chests are supplied for the British Royal Navy. The Apothecaries are obliged to make up their medicines according to the formulas prescribed in the College Dispensatory, and are liable to have their shops visited by the Censors of the College, who are empowered to destroy such medicines as they think not good. In the 55th of the late reign an Act was passed for regulating the practice of Apothecaries; by which it is necessary that every person acting in that profession must undergo an examination at Apothecaries Hall, and must produce satisfactory testimonials of having served five years apprenticeship before they can obtain their certificates.-The charitable dispensation of medicines by the Chinese is well deserving notice: they have a stone erected in the public squares of their cities; on this stone are engraved the names of all sorts of medicines, with the price of each; and when the poor stand in need of any relief from physic, they go to the treasury, where they receive the price each medicine is rated at.
