Brown Gravy

Put a piece of butter, about the size of a hen's egg, into a saucepan;

when it is melted, shake in a little flour, and let it brown; then by

degrees stir in the following ingredients: half a pint of small beer,

the same quantity of water, an onion, a piece of lemon-peel cut small,

three cloves, a blade of mace, some whole pepper, a spoonful of

mushroom-pickle, the same quantity of ketchup, and an anchovy. Let the

whole boil together a quarter of an hour; strain it off, and it will be

a good sauce.
