Abstract

Letter regards fruit preservation but also discusses meat--notes receipt from Hughes of a lambchop, a "porterhouse steak", and a few strawberries. The result was "anything but satisfactory." "The stink emitted from the "Chop" and "steak" was to such a degree noxious, that I was unable to remain in the room & it was some time before I recovered from its bad effects." Weighs in that the process appears to have been a complete failure in this instance.
