PHI’LTER. n.s.

PHI'LTER. n.s.

PHI’LTER. n.s. [φιλτρον; philtre, Fr.] Something to cause love.
The melting kiss that sips
The jellied philtre of her lips. Cleaveland.
This cup a cure for both our ills has brought,
You need not fear a philter in the draught. Dryden.
A philter that has neither drug nor enchantment in it, love
if you would raise love. Addison’s Freeholder, No. 38.
