[Mrst] Shephard’s receipt for a Jack-[poset]

From fam'd Barbados on ye Wastern main Fetch sugar half a pound: fetch sack from [illegible] A pint; is from ye Eastern Indian coast Nutmeg ye glory of our Northern past: On flaming coals together let them heat Till ye all conquering sack dissolves ye sweet: On such another fire let egs twice ten New form from foot of cock, to rump of hew Stir 'em wth steddy hands, on confcienes pricking To see ye untimely fate of twenty chicken From shining shelfs take down your brazen skill A quart of milk from gentle cow will fill it When boiled to cold put milk & sack to egg, units 'em firmly like ye Criple-liague; Then close together lit 'em dust Till milk twice sings, you must not kys ss fell. Each lab, each labs snatch up their murdring spoons And fall on fsrcly like your starved Dragoons
