Chicken with Oysters

Stuff a young chicken with oyster and a few bread crumbs, seasoned
with salt, pepper and butter. Truss the fowl, place it in a tin pail
with a tight cover. Stand the pail in a kettle of boiling water and
leave on the fire one hour and a half. Remove the chicken and place in
a dish. Pour the gravy into a saucepan, adding two dozen oysters,
two hard boiled eggs chopped, a wine glass of cream and one ounce of
butter, into which has been rubbed a teaspoonful of corn starch. Boil
for a few moments and pour over the chicken.
This is an excellent way to cook a young turkey.
