   *DIRECTIONS*
   
   To cook terrapins:  Boil a few and pick them, cutting
   out the gall bladder, which is attached to the liver.
   Be sure not to break the gall sac. Reserve the eggs,
   and put all to stew with 1/2 pint of claret, and
   rather more Madeira, until done.
   
   Force egg yolks through a sieve, then cream then with
   butter. Scald cream over hot water, add seasonings,
   and beat in egg yolk and butter mixture. Add terrapin
   and sherry, and heat thoroughly.
