Cultivated in Europe and in England in cottage gardens on a large scale. Bridgeman<sup>9</sup>, 1832, is the first writer on American gardening who mentions absinthe but now its seeds are cataloged for sale by all our [73]larger dealers. It is classed among medicinal herbs but is largely used in France to flavor the cordial, absinthe, and in America in compounding bitters. The seed is used by the rectifiers of spirits and the plant is largely cultivated in some districts of England for this purpose. It is said occasionally to form an ingredient of sauces in cookery.
