Little Sugar Cakes

Take double-refined sugar and sift it very fine; beat the white of an

egg to a froth; take gum-dragon that has been steeped in juice of lemon

or orange-flower water, and some ambergris finely beaten with the sugar.

Mix all these together in a mortar, and beat it till it is very white;

then roll it into small knobs, or make it into small loaves. Lay them on

paper well sugared, and set them into a very gentle oven.
