To make suckling pies. Take the paste like above, a roll a little thicker & longer than the other paste, & always straightened while rising, that you can put a partridge therein, & put the partridge feet up, then put therein salted lemons cut into slices, nutmeg & ginger, chopped marjoram, & new butter, then re-close the paste at the top that the feet of the partridge stick out, then put in the oven.
