Take a Pound of Beef, or Mutton, or both together, to a Pound put two Quarts of Water, first skin the Meat, and take off all the Fat, and cut it into little Pieces, boil it till it comes to a quarter of a Pint; season it with a very little Corn of Salt, skim off all the Fat, and give a Spoonful of this Broth at a time; to very weak People half a Spoonful is enough; to some a Tea Spoonful at a time; others a Tea-cup full. There is greater Nourishment from this than any thing else.
