Dr. Pepper Recipe from 1880 found

I am a big fan of Dr. Pepper so news that an early notebook containing what might be an original recipe piqued my interest. I expected that it would contain things that you are not allowed to put in sodas anymore like cocaine or embalming fluid. The auction website has some of the pages in great detail, but I can't understand the handwriting of the recipe for "Dr. Pepper Pepsin Bitters" (click on the picture for bigger). The stain on the page might be Dr. Pepper.

The notebook is expected to sell for more than $50,000. I am content with a few high-res pages.
