Pike To Boil A-la-francaise

Wash well, clean, and scale a large pike, and cut it into three pieces;

boil an equal quantity of white wine and water with lemon-peel, and when

the liquor boils put your pike in, with a handful of salt. When done,

lay it on sippets, and stick it with bits of fried bread. Sauce--melted

butter, with slices of lemon in it, the yolks of three eggs, and some

grated nutmeg. Pour your sauce over the pike, and serve it up.
