To seeth chickins in Lettice. Take a neck of Mutton with a marow bone, and so let it seethe, and scum it clean and let it boyle well togither, and when it is enough: then take out some of it and straine it, and put in your Chickins. Then take a good many Letuce and wash them clean and put them in. Then take a little white Bread and straine it and put it into the pot to thick it withal. Then put a little whole mace to season it with Pepper and Vergious, and a little sugar, and cut sops and lay them on, and put on the marow and so serve them.
