Adhering hemp to lime wood

From: George Solonaru <georges>
Date: Wednesday, March 31, 1999
We are restoring a canvas oil painting from 19th century. It's made
on two pieces of lime wood, united, sticked together with two pieces
of lath on the back side. On the front side, over the joining of
wood it was applied a piece of hemp, under the paint layer. The hemp
is unstuck from the wood. We tried to stick it back with fish glue
but it's not working. Can somebody tell us what else can we use?
