Six pounds of the leg of beef, cut up into soup bones; six bay leaves; six whole cloves and six whole pepper corns. Wash the soup bones in cold water and put them into the soup-kettle with cold water enough to cover them, and just before it begins to boil skim it as long as anything rises to the surface. Cover the kettle and boil it slowly five hours. If the water boils down too low replenish with boiling water. When it has boiled three hours put in the bay leaves, cloves and pepper corns. When it is done take out the soup-bones; strain it through a wire sieve and return the soup to the kettle. Put the Calfs head on to boil at the same time that the beef is put on. One calf's head split open in the middle and the brains taken out; one celery root peeled, sliced thin, cut in strips and cross cut; three small leeks, peeled, split down and cut off; two tablespoonfuls of green parsley and two tablespoonfuls of celery leaves, cut up fine; one blade of mace the size of a fivecent piece. Wash the head in cold water and put it into a kettle with cold water enough to cover it, and just before it begins to boil skim it and boil it four hours. When it has boiled two hours put in the vegetables and mace. Half an hour before the soup is done take out the tongue, skin it and let it get cold. When the soup is done take out the bones, strain it through a wire sieve and pour it in with the beef soup. Now skim off all the fat, then put two tablespoonfuls of browned flour and two ounces of fresh butter into a skillet, and when it is hot stir into it a small ladle full of the soup and let it boil until it is thick and then stir it into the soup. Cut the tongue into slices half an inch thick, then in squares, and put it into the soup. Then put in salt and pepper to the taste. Pour the soup into the soup tureen and stir in one gill of sherry wine. There should be only two quarts of soup.
