To stuff and roast four Chickens.
Six ounces salt pork, half loaf bread, six ounces butter, 3 eggs, a handful of parsley shredded fine, summer-savory, sweet marjoram; mix the whole well together, fill and sew up; roast one hour, baste with butter, and dust on flour.
Gravy for the same. Half pint water, half pound butter, 3 spoons flour, a little salt, and wine if you like.
The same composition will answer for six Pigeons, roasted in the pot. The pigeons must be kept from burning by laying skewers on the bottom of the pot, adding three pints of water; cover close, let them do one hour and a quarter; when done pour on one quart stewed oysters, well seasoned with butter and pepper.
