Note

1. Translator’s Note: This English translation of the Latin appears in the original French Encyclopédie article Pyrole ( Botan. ), also by Jaucourt (the French spelling ends in “e”, not “a” as in Latin and in English usage. [https://encyclopedie.uchicago.edu.]. For the header word in the English translation, I have omitted the hyphen from “Wintergreen.”
