6204. OLIVE, Substitute for.—

I lately
received from Colonel Few in New York, a
bottle of the oil of Beni, believed to be a
sesamum. I did not believe there existed so
perfect a substitute for olive oil. Like that of
Florence, it has no taste, and is perhaps rather
more limpid. A bushel of seed yields three
gallons of oil; and Governor Milledge, of
Georgia, says the plant will grow wherever the
Palmi Christi will.—
To Robert R. Livingston. Washington ed. v, 225.
(W. 1808)
