Take three Gallons of new Milk, set it on the fire, and boil it, then put in two Quarts of Cream, and stir it about for a while over the fire, then pour it out into several pans, and cover it till the next morning, then take it off carefully with a Skimmer, and put it all into one dish one upon another, then eat it with Wine and Sugar.

Take of Orrice half a Pound, Rose leaves four Ounces, Cloves one Ounce, Lignum Rhodium two Ounces, Storax one Ounce and an half, Benjamin one Ounce and an half, Musk and Civet of each ten Grains, beat them altogether grosly, save the Rose leaves you must put in afterwards.  This is a very fine Powder to lay among Linnen.
