The World Almanac of the U.S.A, by Allan Carpenter and Carl Provorse, 1996
1800s Recipe 1800s Cooking Tips and Recipes

Strawberry Sponge Cake - Beat the yolks of six eggs with half a pound of powderes sugar until very light, then fold in carefully the well-beaten whites of six eggs, and add slowly a cup and a half of sifted pastry flour. Bake in three layers. While this is baking, boil together one cup of sugar and a quarter of a cup of water until it spins a thread. Pour the syrup while hot over the well-beaten whites of two eggs, and beat until stiff and cold. When the cakes are cold put one on your serving-dish, cover over with a thick layre of this filling, then cover thickly with strawberries, then another cake, more of the filling, more strawberries, and at last the upper cake. Put a thinner layerer of the soft filling and cover thickly with very large berries.

At a funeral, enter the church quietly, and, unless you belong to the mourners, wait until they leave the church before you rise from your seat. Never attempt to speak to any of the afflicted family. However heartfelt your sympathy, it will not be welcome at that time.
