The carver should ask the guests whether they have a preference for the brisket or ribs; and if there be a sweetbread served with the dish, as is frequently with this roast of veal, each person should receive a piece.

Though veal and lamb contain less nutrition than beef and mutton, in proportion to their weight, they are often preferred to these latter meats on account of their delicacy of texture and flavor. A whole breast of veal weighs from nine to twelve pounds.

This cookbook is great fun. How to manage food without microwaves, refrigerators, et cetera. Could also be useful in a pinch. Well written with occasional ideas for the modern experimental cook and housekeeper.
