Break 3 ounces (about a teacupful) of macaroni into 2-inch
pieces; throw it into boiling water, and boil rapidly for 2
minutes.  Drain and throw into cold water for a few moments to
blanch. Use 25 oysters.  Put a layer of macaroni in the baking
dish, then a layer of oysters with a dusting of salt and pepper
and a few bits of butter, then another layer of macaroni and
oysters, and so on until you have the dish full. Pour over the
top 1/2 pint of cream or milk. Cover with bread crumbs and bake
in a moderately quick oven for 1/2 hour.

"On St. Luke's Day, says Mother Bunch, take marigold flowers, a
sprig of marjoram, thyme, and a little wormwood; dry them before
a fire, rub them to powder, then sift it through a fine piece
of lawn, and simmer it over a slow fire, adding a small quantity
of virgin honey and vinegar. Anoint yourself with this when you
go to bed, saying the following lines three times, and you will
dream of your future partner that is to be:
'St. Luke, St. Luke, be kind to me,
In dreams let me my true love see.'
If a girl desires to obtain this information, let her seek for

the door. The first person who comes into the room will be
her husband."

Juliet Corson (1841-1897)
Juliet Corson worked as a librarian and later wrote for the
New York Leader and the National Quarterly Review. In 1873, she
started working as secretary for a Women's school, and soon
started cooking classes with a trained chef to demonstrate
techniques.  This led her to start the New York Cooking School
in 1876, and to write a Cooking Manual in 1877. During the
coming years lectured, and wrote many pamphlets, articles and
additional books on cooking, including Miss Corson's Practical
American Cookery (1886). She ran the New York State Cooking
School exhibit at the 1893 World Columbian Exposition, Chicago.

"An oyster, that marvel of delicacy, that concentration of
