In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • English Sauce
  • Nicomedes Suárez Araúz (bio)

Mix a little water with mustard, granulated sugar and yolks of sun.

Beat well and add a few pounds sterling.

Once blended add milk and vinegar, pouring in a little at a time.

Spread the mixture on the Amazon River of 1850 so it runs to the river’s mouth and travels beyond, all the way to Liverpool.

Rubber seeds will travel from there to Malaysia, just like the Amazonian custom of drinking tea at five o’clock in the afternoon. [End Page 21]
