Trim the slices of meat neatly, removing gristle or tough skin. Well season with salt, pepper, and cayenne, and squeeze over them a few drops of lemon-juice, and lay the meat aside for half an hour. Warm some butter in a pie-dish, then dip the slices in it, coating both sides, and cover them lightly with some of the browned crumbs.

Arrange the mutton neatly on a hot dish, and garnish with washed watercress seasoned with salt, pepper, and a few drops of vinegar, and put a heap of chutney each end. Cost, about Is. 4d.
