1 turnip,

1 small carrot,

1/2 head of celery,

6 green onions shred very fine,

1 lettuce cut small,

1/4 pint of peas,

2 oz. butter,

the yolks of 4 eggs,

salt to taste,

Mode.—Put the vegetables in the butter to stew gently for an hour with a teacupful of stock; then add the remainder of the stock, and simmer for another hour. Now beat the yolks of the eggs well, mix with the cream (previously boiled), and strain through a hair sieve. Take the soup off the fire, put the eggs, &c. to it, and keep stirring it well. Bring it to a boil, but do not leave off stirring, or the eggs will curdle. Season with salt, and add the sugar.
