Boil the terrapin for one hour, and clean carefully. Rub into a paste
the yolks of six hard-boiled eggs, half the white of one egg chopped,
one tablespoonful of butter, one teaspoonful of flour, three whole
cloves, salt, pepper, cayenne and mace. Place the terrapin into a
stewpan with a glass of sherry or madeira and the prepared paste. Cook
slowly for twenty minutes. Add three glasses of sherry and madeira and
allow it to boil once, when it is ready to serve.
