Asses' Milk Far surpasses any imitation of it that can be made. It should be milked into a glass that is kept warm by being in a basin of hot water.
The fixed air that it contains gives some people a pain in the stomach. At first a tea spoonful of rum may be taken with it, but should only be put in the moment it is to be swallowed.

ter, and mash them. In the meantime boil two quarts of water with one large spoonful of oatmeal, and a bit of lemon-peel; theri add the cranberries, and as much fine Lisbon sugar as shall leave a smart favour of the fruit; and a quarter of a pint of sherry, or less, as may be proper : boil all half an hour, and strain off.
