    According to the text you need a window to the east in a room where all the other openings should be closed very well. A is a funnel out of sheet metal that is sticked through a round carved opening of the window. B is a covering of the funnel made out of lead. C is another kind of funnel. It should be as long as an arm and also made of lead. H is a heating unit and on top of it G a plate of tin filled with ashes. When having cool clear weather it should be heated gently and some liquid is supposed to appear in the receiver F. When having warm and humid weather the ashes must be replaced with NaCl and under the tin plate ice is placed. This way you get the stuff like when having cool weather. The lead covering B should be covering funnel A when there is bad weather.
    D and E should not be needed to be explained.
    The whole process should begin in May and at sunrise and should be stopped 9 hours later.
    That's the whole process of the first step of the 5th grade. I hope I didn't miss something I just wrote that from memory.

    Edit: I forgot that the process needs to be repeated until "enough" liquid is obtained. It has to be filled into glassware with (glass)stoppers. According to the text one has to watch out that there is no air in the glass together with the liquid, because it would form an earth and ruin the process.

    The legend below says that figure II represents "the collection of the virgin earth".

    I could never understand the use of metals in a system like this. Isnt the whole point of SM, to reduce metals to their first matter? So then.... wont it react with the metals???

    Edit: Oh by the way, thankyou too both of you who andwered my questions.

    Welcome to the perennial conundrum & contradiction of all those who actually take that whole "universal solvent" thing quite literally. Kunckel used to mock their beliefs by pointing out one pertinent fact: if this thing really dissolves "everything", then how can you possibly prepare it or store it? It would dissolve the vessels used for the purpose!

    The "water" that is supposed to be condensed with this system never actually touches metal. It only condenses in the last receiver F.

    Yes, but the first Spirit is not the Secret Solvent. It is still "Mercurius Simplex", after certain nomenclatures.

    The Secret Solvent results from the Spirit interacting with its Earth (the "Virgin Earth" of Image II, in this case) and "absorbing" the volatile Fire contained therein. The remaining fixed Fire of this "Earth" is to be later rendered into the Philosophical Sulfur. I'm just saying what the books are saying
