Cut bread of medium thickness. Toast each side over a clear fire, until a golden brown. Dip the edge all around quickly in hot water, but keep the center of the piece dry. Spread generously with butter. Put the slice on a plate, cover closely and set in the oven to steam. Add each slice until all are done. Serve immediately.
Put a quart of milk over boiling water to heat. When nearly boiling hot, stir in a small tablespoon of flour mixed smooth in 1/2 cup cold milk. Let cook for a minute or two. Season with salt and pepper, and a large spoon of butter. Dip each slice of toast in the milk separately. Place in a tureen, and pour the gravy over the whole.
