over it a little boiling water, about a pint of small-beer, add a carrot

or two, an onion stuck with cloves, some whole pepper, salt, a piece of

lemon-peel, a bunch of sweet herbs; let it stew an hour, then add some

good gravy; when the meat is tender take it out and strain the sauce;

thicken it with a little flour; add a little celery ready boiled, a
