Bitore roste. Capitulum cxj. Slee a bytour in the mouth as an heron, and draw hym as an henne, and fold vppe hys legges as a crane; and lete the wynges be on, and take the boon of the necke all awey as of an heron: and putt the hedde in the golet or in the shuldre, and rost hym; and ryse the legges and the wynges as thou dost of an heron, and no sauce butt salt: and sett hym forth.
